Marination and shallow frying:

  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry cloves, cardamom, cinnamon sticks. In to this place the whole chicken and shallow fry for 5 min each side and keep aside.
For gravy and filling:
  1. In the same pan fry onion, chopped ginger and garlic, add all the masala powders and saute for a while. Add tomatoes and cook covered. Finally dilute the coconut milk in 1/4 cup of water and add into the gravy. Boil off any excess water. The gravy should be thick.
  2. Fry potato slices in oil and combine with the above gravy.
Stuffing chicken:
  1. Bake the marinated chicken at 400 F for 20 min each side. Push half of the filling to the cavity and remaining spread in the baking tray. Finally bake for 10 more min at 400 F. Garnish with cilantro and slices of tomato and lemon.
