Kerala Style Chicken Fry

I have been waiting to make this dish for a few weeks now, but I think the word FRY was not letting me do it due to the possible calories involved hahha …. However, we had a newly married over for lunch today and I decided to include this in the menu!  As you will read below, its real easy to make – the key is the marination and the time you let it marinate so the masalas do all their work on the meat

Serve this chicken dish as a side to a rice and curry meal. This is definitely not an intimidating dish, so if you are a newbie in the kitchen, you can’t make a mistake. I hope you get to make this  sometime and if you do, let me know of the outcome!
