Roasted Onion Chicken Curry Recipe -Kerala Style


Roasted Onion Chicken Curry Recipe -Kerala Style. We used to prepare kerala style roasted coconut curry, in this recipe I made a slight variation to that recipe. Instead of coconut I fried onion and grinded it and mixed in this curry. This curry is more tastier than the roasted coconut curry. Fried onion enhanced the taste of this curry. One more variation I made in this curry, that is, before adding chicken pieces in this curry, I just tried to marinate the chicken pieces with all spice powders, ginger garlic paste and lemon juice then fried it. Just try to fry chicken pieces before adding into the curry, then u can feel the difference in taste. Fried chicken pieces will be more tastier than the normal chicken pieces that we are just marinating and adding into the curry. Just follow the steps that I mentioned below in making this curry. I am sure that u will also like the taste of this curry. When u don’t have coconut with u for making curry, u can just grind the fried onion and add that paste to the curry. U can try this method for any veg and nonveg curries. Let us come to the recipe
