I want to try this recipe so badly for such a long time and finely I got a chance last weekend..This is one of keralan speciality dishes and as you guys know that I love keralan dishes a lot right..
Many people have difficulty in frying chicken because you can get crispy and good colour on outside but the inside will not be cooked or every thing will be cooked but the chicken must have become very hard..If you are one of those people..Then this chicken is the solution..
In this recipe the chicken is cooked in pressure cooker completely..So you don’t have to worry about whether chicken is cooked or not…You are just frying the chicken to make it crispy..
So I know you guys will surely try it…Straightaway I am delivering you the step by step recipe with pictures..Check it out..
