Malabar Chicken Curry | Restaurant Style

Malabar Chicken curry.A famous Dish from South India. As per my knowledge Malabar coast is a beautiful place for holidays. As it is a district of Kerala I believe on these words that It is really a Lovely Place in India. In future i want to go there definitely to cherish its scenic beauty..Though i have a very little knowledge about Malabar it will be better If you suggest somethings about Malabar foods...

As i live in chennai i tried few Malabar dishes in some restaurant. I  like Malabar Chicken Biriyani...a preparation of pure ghee with samba rice and  little spicy at all (I feel). A digestive preparation. And about Malabar Chicken Curry its really a spicy and rich chicken curry i made ever. I found this recipe from a TV show. And I must say about the truth that the recipe also belongs to one of the special south indian restaurant in Kolkata. The name of the Restaurant is Tamarind(opposite to Deshapriyo Park). A chef from Tamarind restaurant shared the recipe of Malabar Chicken Curry.I tried exactly how he explained, and trust it was just superb. My family just enjoyed it heavenly. Only thing I changed I prepared with bone chicken pcs. But actually the preparation will be in boneless chicken. So friends if you try this chicken curry try boneless chicken to get the authenticity. Now check out the recipe...
