Non-Veg Thali / Non-Vegetarian Thali - Chicken Roast

For the final of Thali Theme in BM#70 edition is a non -vegetarian Thali.I mostly try to share vegetarian recipes for Blogging Marathon.But this time I wanted to share a non-veg Thali,which has been in my to do list so long.I never got a chance to cook elaborate non-veg meal on week days and couldn't click picture for thali.
Last week I cooked the chicken thali and saved some food for the photo shoot.The thali has

1.Coconut milk rice
2.Kodi kura
3.Egg Fry
4.Chicken Roast
5.Onion Raita
6.White rice
8.Rava Kesari

Coming to the recipe,its a simple roast can be made with boneless chicken.The highlight of the recipe is,its doesn't need onion and tomato.All you need to do is just marinate the chicken with the spices for 2-3 hours and cook it.
