Kodi Kura Andhra Style | Andhra Chicken Curry ~ Indian Thali | Step by Step Recipe

Sharing is caring!

For the next thali in the series, I want to showcase a typical Andhra Thali featuring non vegetarian dishes. When it comes to making non veg dishes on special occasions or even Sundays, we make it a point to make some dry items, mostly masala rice or pulao. Sometimes when we want to pair it with Biryani, the side dish becomes little mild and not your regular spicy stuff. In this case the biryani flavour has to be more.
We made this thali couple of weeks back. Since we have vegetarians to cater too, it was decided that we make Tomato Pulao. Kids normally prefer chicken, so it will have to feature on the table. On the other hand, there is always a sweet and a paan that’s mandatory for any Non Veg thali too. I served ice cream and beda was there, but missed in the picture!

  1. We have a very similar Odia chicken curry with same ingredients with the major difference being the order in which we add the spices and sans the coconut. Adding the spices even in a slightly different order does make a huge difference 🙂
