Erode Pallipalayam Chicken Fry

First post of 2022! How about a spicy chicken fry recipe to kickstart the year?

What I loved about this Erode Pallipalayam Chicken Fry is its simplicity. The flavor comes from shallots, garlic, and dry red chilies. It's a breeze to make this dish and it's packed with flavors.

You can have it as a starter or add some coconut milk to make it a bit saucy. We had it with some coconut rice and it paired beautifully.

This recipe is from kannammacooks and I trust Suguna's recipes so much that I didn't change a single thing from the original recipe.

Hope you get to try this soon and like it too.

Here is the recipe…
