 Ingredients Quantity
ALCO Garam Masala  1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon
Freshly ground pepper As needed
Salt As needed
Honey 1/4 cup
Black Mission figs (stemmed and quartered) 4 dried
Tamarind paste 1 tsp
Garlic cloves 8
  2 cups
Two chickens 3 1/2 pound
Vegetable oil 3 tbsp.



  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. In a small bowl, mix the ALCO Garam Masala with the oil. In a roasting pan, rub the chickens all over with the garam masala oil and season with salt. Roast the chickens for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350° and continue roasting for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting twice. Return the oven temperature to 450° and crisp. Transfer the chickens to a carving board and let them rest for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the chicken stock with the garlic and tamarind paste and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the garlic is very soft, about 40 minutes. Strain the stock through a coarse sieve and press the garlic through. Stir in the figs and honey, cover and let steep until the figs are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Carve the chicken. Reheat the fig jus, season with salt and pepper and serve with the chicken.
