Chettinad Chicken Kuzhambu/Chettinad Chicken Gravy

Chettinade cuisine, one of the famous cuisine i have seen rarely people saying 'no'. This cuisine have so many authentic foods with wonderful flavours,especially my better half fond for their dishes. Being a Pondicherrian,i have been pampered from my younger age with chettinad style cuisine, coz our pondicherry cuisine is a medley of many cuisines and most of our dishes will have a chettinad touch in it. Obviously if am cooking chettinad style foods at home, my family will wait eagerly to taste them.

Coming to this chicken kuzhambu, i prepared it few days back and i thought that i have already posted in my space, thank god i checked my recipe index before a month and i found that am yet to post our family favourite chettinad chicken kuzhambu,when i prepared this time i immediately clicked few pictures and here am posting it today.This gravy goes awesome with any kind of foods, serve it with rice or rotis. Am sure everyone at home will definitely love this delicious curry. A real feast for any chicken lovers like me.Sending this fingerlicking kuzhambu to Lakshmi's Tried & Tasted- Chettinad Cuisine.
