Spicy Chicken Fry


This recipe is my all time favorite from the hands of my mother-in-law; I use to prepare this dish very often. But wonder so long how I haven’t blogged this recipe. In this dish the chicken is boiled and then fried with spice powders. This goes well as side dish for steamed rice and Sambhar, steamed rice and Dal fry, Sambhar sadham and Curd/yogurt rice. Let us move on to the recipe…
