Naadan Kozhi Curry/Kerala Chicken Curry

Weekend we had a simple lunch but with a flavourful chicken curry, i tried Kerala style chicken curry which is well known as Naadan chicken curry.This yummy fingerlicking chicken curry tastes simply awesome when they are served with any kind of dish, yep they suits very well either with a simple white rice or a flavourful and rich ghee rice. Tastes more delicious even when served  along with rotis. I got this recipe from Niya's world, she always makes me hungry with her yummy dishes and when i wanted to make this Naadan chicken curry,i immediately went to her space to check her chicken curry. I got hooked to her irresistible chicken curry and tried without any hesitation for our sunday lunch. Thanks to Niya for sharing this super flavourful Kerala chicken curry.Sending to Kerala Kitchen guest hosted by Julie and to Divya's The Master Chef Contest.

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the coconut oil, fry the chopped onions, slit opened green chillies,grated ginger,curry leaves and crushed garlic,cook until the onions turns transculent.
