Andhra chicken fry recipe


Andhra Chicken Fry recipe with step by step instructions. తెలుగు వెర్షన్
andhra chicken fry

this is the most commonly prepared Sunday recipe in almost every household in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.this spicy fry is usually served with hot rice and Miryiyaala charu ( pepper Rasam).but it can also be served with Rotis or Pulkas.

as it is a dry recipe, you don’t need to add any water.the moisture in the marinade is enough for the chicken to get can increase or reduce the quantity of chili powder slightly according to your taste.I don’t know how others cook but I would really like to add a little ginger garlic paste at the end after adding the garam masala.doing this gives the recipe a nice flavor and can also add 1 tbsp of desiccated coconut powder and 1 tsp poppy seeds at the end.but you need to roast and powder them before adding.

after adding the masala and ginger garlic paste at the end, you need to keep mixing the curry on high flame.soon the gravy starts to stick to the bottom.let it stick just for 15 to 30 seconds and scrape with the spoon.doing so gives the fry a very nice taste.repeat the process until the curry becomes extremely dry.but make sure that you don’t let it over burn.squeeze out half a lemon after you dish out the fry and serve along with some chopped onions and nicely roasted cashew nuts.

squeeze out half a lemon after you dish out the fry and serve along with some chopped onions and nicely roasted cashew nuts.I hope you try and enjoy this recipe.

    I made this couple times. I love the taste. But I didn’t get the color. I have to make this for a party, please can u suggest what can I do (or not doing) to get this color? I don’t want to use food color. I use kashmeri chilli for color.

    1. Hi, Revthi.Thank you so much for trying my recipe :).I always use either Everest Tikhalal or Ashirwad red chili powder for my curries.but from the past few days, I have started using ITC Master Chef Guntur Koora Kaaram(Guntur curry red chili powder).It exactly tastes like the authentic Guntur Curry red chili powder prepared by my Granny(she belongs to Guntur, A.P).the first two gives you a nice color and the ITC kaaram gives you a very nice taste.they add some extra spices to the chili powder.anyway, if you really want the color, go with Tikhalal(too spicy&colorful) or Ashirwad(normal spicy&colorful).and don’t forget to add the turmeric powder( 1 tsp for 1 kg).it is the turmeric powder that helps the red to appear more reddish.plz, make sure that the onions won’t get caramelized.once the onions turn brown we cannot bring the curry back to the reddish color.hope my suggestions may help you. 🙂
      P.S: I slightly increase the sharpness and vividness of my Images before they appear to be little(like 5 to 10%) reddish than they actually are.
