I prepared this chettinad chicken fry recipe for the very first time and I just fell in love with it.

I made chettinad chicken masala dry recipe i.e. no gravy at all. It was a fry recipe, masala just coated the chicken pieces. The chicken was very tasty, I served it with Steamed Rice and Rasam. But I couldn't resist myself, and I ate just the pieces as whole. Dry Chettinad Chicken can be served as a starter too. It was so yum, do prepare Chettinad Chicken and you will drool fall in love with it. It is a drool worthy recipe.
