a little bit about the recipe
Kerala Chicken fry is a popular spicy and tangy chicken dish, that can be served as a snack or even as a lunch/dinner option with a side of some Indian flat bread or rice. The chicken drum sticks are marinated with a blend of spices and ginger garlic paste. They are then shallow fried in virgin coconut oil with fresh curry leaves to infuse all the flavors and create a juicy chicken with crunchy crust.
