Kodi Vepudu – Simple Chicken Fry



On Sunday, it was Bisi Bele Bath and Kodi vepudu aka Chicken fry. Makes a delectable combination with some appadams. I just realized that I havent blogged any stir fry chicken dishes. This chicken fry is the simplest ever that even a 10 year can prepare. Usually I cook the chicken in its own water till almost dry and in a separate vessel, stir fry the cooked chicken in garam masala and curry leaves. It requires less oil, quick and tasty.

    Good recipe shailu…i have a doubt shailu, can we put marinated chicken in cooker before frying?

    You can use a pressure cooker too. Take care that there is no water content left before stir frying the cooked chicken with spices and curry leaves.
