Andhra Spicy Chicken Fry

Today's recipe is a spicy Andhra chicken which I bookmarked from Srivalli's blog and i tried it for weekend lunch,it tasted awesome.Due to the color of my red chilly powder the color was in a darker side,her's is in a perfect spicy color.
As Hubby dear prefers dry fry I made it drier version,you can adjust the consistency as per your preference.She used the pressure cooker to cook the chicken but here the chicken gets cooked faster so I made it in the pan.
This chicken fry is a perfect go with pulao and rasam rice.Try this spicy chicken fry and enjoy,lets move on to the recipe...................
