Chettinad Chicken Curry


Quintessential South Indian curry. Chicken thigh pieces cooked with coconut, fennel, tomatoes and a punchy home-made masala.

This is the first chicken curry I learnt to cook 43 years ago. It’s still our family favourite.
Our Spinach Dal and Aubergine Gothsu are my favourite sides with this curry.
