Kozhi thoran/Chicken Thoran



Chicken Thoran (updated pic)

Chicken Thoran is a delicious and aromatic side dish and is a traditional Kerala recipe. It is a very popular dish in southern part of Kerala, the region adjoining Trivandrum. It is boneless stir fried chicken with grated coconut and spices. You can use very small pieces of chicken or chunks just like the size of chilly chicken  to make this dish.This dish no doubt is an example of the richness and  flavors of traditional Kerala cuisine. It is a great accompaniment with rice and pulisherri.


Ingredients
Chicken boneless- 1 lb
Shallots- 10-15
Onion- 1 medium
Ginger - 1 inch thick
Green chilly-5
garlic 2 pods
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Coconut grated- 3/4 cup
Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds
salt to taste
oil

Clean and cut chicken into small pieces. Crush coconut, chilly powder, curry leaves and two pods of garlic using a mixer and keep aside. Crush shallots, ginger, green chilly and cut onion into thin slices. 
In a heavy bottom pan heat oil and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add the crushed shallot, green chilly mixture and saute till golden brown. Add turmeric powder and salt and after a minute of sauteing add in the chicken and the thin slices of onion. Continue to stir in a medium flame till the chicken turns white and starts shedding its own water. Pour half a cup of water, cover and cook till the chicken is almost done. Add in the coconut mixture and finally gram masala. Saute till the chicken is completely dried up. Serve as a side dish for rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
