2 inches of ginger
zest of half gandharaj (fragrant lime)
2 tabs of gandharaj juice
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp. of ground pepper
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
2 tbsp of olive oil

For stuffing:

half onion (finely chopped)
salt and pepper to taste (adjust to taste)


To make the marinade:

– The marinade is ready.

To make the stuffing:
– In a bowl, add the chopped celery, remaining half of the gandharaj zest, onion, salt and pepper and mix all the ingredients well.
– The stuffing is ready.

To roast the chicken:
– Start with making the incisions on the chicken so the the marinade makes its way inside the chicken for good flavours. While making the incisions, make sure you make the incisions along the fibre and not against the fibre.
– Stuff the cavities with the marinade and use some to massage onto the chicken.
– Wash your hands and then stuff the cavity with the onion stuffing.
– Truss the chicken before you put it in the rotisserie. Begin with tying the legs of the chicken.
– Pre heat the rotisserie to 150 Degrees Celsius.
– Put the rotisserie rod through the chicken and screw it up tightly.
– Pit it in the rotisserie rod for about 45 – 60 minutes.
– Around the 40 minutes mark, stick the meat thermometer deep into the chicken to check the internal temperature.
– The chicken would be done once the thermometer reaches between 73 – 80 Degrees Celsius.
– Once the chicken is done, let it cool down for sometime before serving. Then pull it out of the rod and cut the string.
– Serve it on a plate of Romaine lettuce.
