Nadan Kozhi Curry/Kerala Chicken Curry



Nadan Kozhi Curry/Kerala Chicken Curry

This is my grandmothers recipe and is a traditional style chicken curry, flavorful and delicious. It is spicy and rich with regional flavors of Kerala like spices,coconut and coconut oil. In this recipe I have used roasted thin coconut slices. You can also add coconut milk. For recipe with coconut milk check here...Nadan kozhi curry goes well with rice, appam or pathiri.

Ingredients
 Chicken- 1 1/2 lb
Shallots sliced- 3 cup
Onion thinly sliced- 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 3 tsp
Green chilly-2
Curry leaves- 3 springs
Coconut oil


To fry

Coconut thinly sliced- 1/2 cup
Whole spices- cardamon 2, clove-5
Cinnamon stick- 2 pieces, star aniseed- 1
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp


For the Masala
Chilly powder-2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 3 tsp
Garam Masala powder- 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1 tsp
Asafoetida-1/3 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste



Clean and cut chicken into small pieces. Marinate with pepper powder turmeric powder and salt and keep aside for half an hour.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds followed by whole spices and roast till there is a nice aroma. Add coconut slices and roast this till golden brown and crispy. Add in hing and fry for a minute followed by onions, curry leaves and green chilly and saute till onions are golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw flavor disappears. Add the marinated chicken along with chilly powder, coriander powder, fenugreek powder, fennel powder and salt. Reduce heat and toss chicken till it is well coated with the masala and continue to fry till the chicken changes color and gets lightly fried in the outside. This might take around three to four minutes. Add 1 1/2 cup of hot water, cover and cook in medium flame till chicken is done. Take off the lid add garam masala and allow the curry to simmer and thicken. Serve with rice or appam..


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy

  1. Chicken curry and appam - yummy:) Thank you for the recipe, definitely trying this one out. I have tried so many chicken curry recipes and many are good in their own way, but there is something so special about the Kerala chicken curry - perhaps it reminds me of my own Mom's:):)
