I’m a big time addict of home cooked food, coz you know whats going inside your body, you can add or skip what you like and add/reduce spice level based on your taste. When you are lazy but still feel like eating home made tasty chicken, here’s a treat for your taste buds, Kongunadu Kozhi Varuval.

Kongu Nadu Kozhi Fry

If you are lazy even to fry the given items, grind it as is and still it would be good.  Coconut and poppy seed makes it a bit sweet, so I added more red chili to make it even more spicier.
