    @ honey pvz. You can roast chicken pcs by using scewers. and no need to add any spice or salt. And even you can try the roasting method as suggested by jean chaurasia.

    Unusual, but a tasty recipe. I dry fried the chicken pcs in a nonstick pot on low heat, the fat from the chicken is enough to fry the chicken till it is light bown. Give this a try before proceeding with the rest of the recipe.
