Chettinad Chicken Masala

31 Jul 2010



Chettinad Chicken Masala:

I love Chettinad food. I tried this Chettinad Chicken Masala recipe and it came out really well. This is a rich curry dish of South India, and tastes excellent, when served hot, garnished with coriander leaves and accompanied with tandoori naan, rotis or white steamed rice. This mouth watering dish can be prepared easily. In this chicken is marinated and cooked in dry roasted spices masala. This masala is very hot and flavorful.

And, I would love to thank Sadhana of My Lovely Kitchen & Vasavi Suresh of Vasavi Recipes for passing me The Versatile Blogger Award.  Thanks  for this lovely award  Friends.  As, I have already posted, am not posting here.

Here is the easy and delicious recipe…:)
