Virudhunagar Chettinad Chicken Kozhumbu/Gravy

Chicken curry is very favourite dish for most non-vegetarians in Indian. Tender chicken with spicy pepper makes it more tangible dish of the south. Hence I thought of sharing the receipe for Virudhunagar chettinad chicken kozhumbu/gravy.


Chicken - 1 kg(cut in to big chunks)
Small onion/Red pearl onion - 10 nos(chopped)
Cashew nuts - 6 nos

kuskus - 3tsp
cocunut milk - 1 1/2 cups
Dried red chillies - 4nos

Salt - to taste
Curry leaves - to Garnish

1. Grind cashewnuts, pepper, red chillies and kuskus to nice paste form.
2. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add the finely chopped onions to it, wait until the onions turn brown.
3. Then add the chunks of chicken to it and a tablespoon of butter, pinch of salt according to the taste.
4. Now add the prepared paste and uniformly stir them so that the chicken mixes well with the paste.
5. Add about 1/2 cup of water and allow them to cook for 10 minutes with the lid closed.
6. Finally add coconut milk to it and cook them in a low flame for 20 minutes untill the curry becomes thick.
7. Garnish them with Curry leaves.
