Easy Kerala Style Chicken Fry Recipe

When am absolutely bored/jobless I’ve this habit of channel surfing from the beginning to the end. But most of the days, even after surfing a 100+ channels, I feel like there is nothing to watch!!! Anyways,one day I got lucky and came across a cookery show. Ya I love to watch cookery shows, I guess many people love watching it even if they don’t like cooking ;)

Its very good as a starter for a party or for just munching it while watching TV or when you’ve that sudden urge to snack something spicy and that too real fast, this is the one!!

  • 1 cup Boneless chicken (cut into bite size pieces)
  • 1-2 tsp Chilly powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp Pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika (optional)
  • Salt
  • 5-7 Green chilly
  • Curry leaves
  • Oil


  • Marinate the chicken pieces with chilly powder, pepper powder, paprika (if using) and salt. Keep it for 10-15 mins. Shallow fry in oil, add the green chilly and tons of curry leaves along with the chicken pieces. Fry till the chicken is tender and it gets a good reddish brown colour. Sprinkle a pinch of salt on the fried chicken to give it an extra flavor. Serve hot.


The green chilly & curry leaves gives the flavor to this. Also I recommend using coconut oil for frying, if you like it’s taste. Please adjust the qty of spice powders to suit your taste.
