Chicken Chettinad Dry

Chicken Chettinad Dry, here is another recipe from Chettinad cuisine. This is one of the easy chicken dry roast recipe that can be made within half an hour. My husband mostly prefer dry masalas as side dish for rice. So, I am trying different varieties of dry masalas each time. If you want the curry with some gravy, you can add few tomatoes before adding the chicken, rest of the steps are same. I have made this Chicken little spicy, you can adjust the chilies according to your taste.
