Karaikudi Chicken Fry | Chicken fry in Karaikudi Style | Easy Chicken Fry Recipes | South Indian Chicken Recipes

Karaikudi chicken masala

I did not prepare any chicken dish for many days and my hubby asked me for a yummy chicken dish. So I prepared this Karaikudi Chicken Fry taken from here. Though it is a fry, I tried it as a gravy one as we can have it for chappathi or roti at night. So for a fry, add less onions and tomatoes. You can also try different Chicken recipes below.
