What you will need:

1 capon, cut into quarters (scored) 

2 tablespoons brown vinegar 

Salt to taste 

1 teaspoon paprika 

1 teaspoon turmeric powder 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 cup tamarind sauce (thick)

1/2 teaspoon cumin powder 

70g tomato paste 

1 tablespoon sugar 

3 tablespoons oil 

2 cups of rice 

4 cups water 

3 fried onions 

What to do: -

Remove the skin of the chicken cut it into quarters, and score it with a knife so that it cooks towards the inside.

Mix all the ingredients with the chicken except for the oil and marinate for 2 hours or so.

In a non-stick pan that is oven-friendly (meaning no plastic handles), add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and pan-sear the chicken for about 2 minutes on each side.

Place in an oven at 180°C and roast for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. In a pot, put in the water and rice, add salt to taste and bring to a simmer.

Once the water is almost evaporated, put in the chicken tikka and mix well.  Cover with a tight lid and steam for another 15 minutes. 

Sprinkle some fried onions and serve. Enjoy!
