Chettinadu Chicken gravy / Chicken masala

We are preparing many dishes using Chicken. This time, i tried a delicious spicy chicken gravy in Chettinadu style. When guests come to my house, I prepare this gravy as side dish for Biriyani and also tiffin items like idly, dosa, chappathy, poori.. Everybody liked this gravy and my husband says to prepare every time. I normally prepare chicken curry with only masala powders. In this style, we have to saute some ingredients to grind and also add masala powders. If we want ore gravy, we can add coconut paste or coconut milk.

For making this style gravy, i used tempering in final stage. It is very tasty and very simple to prepare. I used sambar onion to ground masala. Sambar onion gives the gravy nice aroma and wonderful taste. Try this simple gravy recipe and get rich taste of Chettinadu chicken.
