Kerala Style Easy Chicken Curry
Kerala Style Easy Chicken Curry is a traditional spicy delicacy with an outstanding flavor of cardamom. The fresh cardamom flavor from God’s own country makes the dish simply exquisite. We have introduced a very easy Kerala Chicken Curry which is undoubtedly one of the best chicken curries. Chicken pieces are marinated in a spicy cardamom flavored marinade before cooking. Sauteing the onions and curry leaves in hot oil until the onions are browned and sauteing again after adding the chicken pieces too until all the moisture is absorbed, makes the real difference. Hot water is added simultaneously and when gravy becomes thick, Kerala Style Easy Chicken Curry is removed from fire. Enjoy the Kerala Chicken Curry dish.

Simply suberb..finger-licking good. I added 2tbsp of yogurt to the marinade since I did not want it to be too spicy for my 2yr old…tastes very good with dosas too.

Lovely recipe ! The first time I made it I forgot to add the cardamom powder to the marinade…it came out well anyways. The second time I added it as required and that made a huge difference indeed. That flavor is what made it into an authentic kerala chicken curry. As soon as u open the lid of the dish a couple of hrs after its made, the aroma of fresh ground cardamom tickles yr olfactory senses 🙂 and its sooo good. Need I say abt the flavor then ?!

Hey Foo, Sindhu`s receipe is really good. If your curry came out bad that means you don`t know how to cook even reading a receipe. Everybody who rated this receipe made this curry very tasty. Yours was bad, that means you are bad cook or you are very jealous. Any way I tried this receipe and it was fantastic. Sindhu thank you very much. Post more….

Sindhu, very good recipe ! People like `Foo` should probably stay away from cooking due to obvious reasons ! First of all, the name Foo looks made up or phony. This person obviously has no clue about cooking or was on crack while making this dish ! Foo, why don`t you post something on the website so that you can share your culinary skills with the rest of the world and we get to learn something from you as well.
