Arachuvitta Naatu Kozhi kuzhambu | Country chicken Kuzhambu | Chicken Recipes

naatu kozhi kulambu

I always love country chicken than the broiler chicken. I feel it is good for health and tastes best, when cooked in a traditional way. This recipe Arachuvitta Naatu Kozhi Kuzhambu I took from a old recipe diary which I brought long before from India. I tried this and came out good. I made this bit watery but you can make it in a thick kuzhambu too.
