Apply Butter evenly on the whole chicken upside down and put it in the griller to roast. The timing for griller is 25-30 minutes. at 200 degrees.
If griller not available, you can use a desi pot tandoor to do so. Cover the tandoor and let it cook. Check often and change the side for proper cooking. If you like it crispy you can cook for longer periods.
