Andhra Chicken Fry

Andhra chicken Fry is a classic and simple chicken fry to prepare. Hubby loves all authentic Andhra methods and always prefers simple dishes prepared with just few items. Yet, its amazing how delicious it turns out. And he loves the non veg dishes that his sisters prepare. He says those are devoid of all modern influence. Infact, his second brother in law is good at making non veg dishes. I always wanted to see how he prepares but never gets a chance, as I will be busy with kids. This time when my sil came down, hubby was particular that she prepares something for him. So she got into action and Chicken Fry got done in a jiffy.

I requested hubby to take a snap of this dish. When I got back to import the snaps, the elder one saw his pictures and both of the twins came running to the computer. Hara, the elder one seeing his picture, showed that it was himself on the screen. He just wouldn't move and kept on saying "Nane Nane" in telugu (Its me). It was so cute seeing him say that. They now can understand everything that we say to them. When we say "Ram Ram sita Ram, Govinda", on hearing Govinda, Hara takes his hands over his head and says something. So finally with great difficulty uploaded this picture.

Ingredients Needed

Chicken pieces - 200 gms
Onion - 1 medium
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves few

Method to prepare:

Clean chicken and cut to small pieces.

Heat a pan with oil. Once its hot, add the sliced onions and fry till its brown. Add ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell leaves.

Add chicken pieces to the pan. Add the chilli pw, coriander pw, turmeric powder and salt. Cover and cook on high flame for 5 mins.
Then simmer for 15 mins, till the chicken is cooked. The stream that comes out is enough to cook the chicken.

Remove cover and add the pepper powder. Mix well and garnish with coriander leaves.

My husband is from Andhra. I'm not, I'm American. I've made this recipe a couple of times and my husband loves it. Thank you for sharing! It is simple. I must ask, when you say 200 g of chicken, is that chicken with or without bones? Does that equal about 1/3 of a pound?
