Traditional Nagercoil chicken curry which is also called as nanjil nattu chicken curry which is so flavourful. Taste amazing with roti, rice, paratha, dosa and idlies.
This is the chicken curry which we make on most of the occasion, when there is parties, functions or regular weekends. This is the curry which i learned to cook my first non veg curry. Because you can never go wrong with them. It is so basic, the spice which we add is store bought chicken masala powder. If you cannot find that add a mixture of chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala powder. But i am sure that you can find chicken masala powder in any shop.
