Naatu Kozhi Varuval / Country Chicken Roast

Till now I do not know what is the exact difference between the broiler chicken and the country chicken. Only thing I feel is, country chicken (Naatu kozhi or kampong chicken in malay) is more tastier than normal broiler chicken. This recipe I took from makkal Tv's - Suvai Payanam in you tube. This is very simple and easily prepared roast yet very tasty.

  • Country Chicken - 2 thighs and 2 breast
  • Curd - 2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder - 4 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
  • Red colour - 2 pinch (optional)
  • Coconut Oil - for frying
  • In a bowl, add chilli powder, curd, ginger garlic paste and salt.
  • To this add lemon juice and mix nicely.
  • Wash thighs and breast of chicken nicely with salt.
  • Make slots in the chicken.
  • Marinate the chicken with the prepared masala and inbetween the slots.
  • Let it rest for 1 hr or refrigerate for 30 to 40 mts. (the more it rests, the more tastier).
  • Now in a big kadai/wok, add coconut oil and heat in high flame.
  • When the oil is hot, reduce the flame to medium and put the marinated chicken piece one by one and roast on both sides.
  • When the color of chicken turns reddish brown, remove from oil.
  • Spicy and tangy naatu kozhi varuval is ready to eat...

Mouth watering, they looks just like they serve at restaurants, super yum


hi akhila, surprise, i am a malay, where did you learn the word "kampong chicken"? ha ha..
definitely its healthier to eat organic chicken like kampong chick. the broiler chicks are being fed with processed foods or given jabs to ensure they grow big at a faster time.-this means forcing the chick to grow against natural ways.
hmm love this fried chicken of yours- nice for iftar... happy fasting dear


wow makes me drool.. very tempting and mouthwatering varuval..

Wow yummy I just wanna grab one :) Broilers are vaccinated with hormones and provided food specially to increase its growth and flesh, whereas country chickens are grown in houses and farms with no interference with their natural growth so its healthier than broilers and has lesser yummy flesh too :)
