Chicken curry in India is as varied as the food culture of the country. The basic chicken curry embodies different forms in different regions, but it is pure magic that it always tastes amazing. Go to any part of the country, the seemingly different chicken curry will impress your palate in the same way. It is just astonishing how the essence of this popular Indian dish is never lost even with the addition and subtraction of various ingredients and spices. It is always rich, meaty and oh-so flavourful. Here we are talking about Andhra-special chicken curry, fondly called Natu Kodi Kura in the region.
In the rural villages of Andhra Pradesh, Natu Kodi Kura is literally a staple. And if you ever happen to taste the village-style chicken curry, you'll realise why the people there still stick to the traditional method of cooking the chicken using hand-ground spices and cooking the dish on an old-age wood fire. The invigorating aroma and depth of flavours is something else.
But, of course, not all of us can use wood fire to cook our food at our homes. So, we will make this special Andhra chicken curry on our usual gas top, in a pressure cooker. But you must retain the essential ingredients of this recipe to make it as close to the typical Natu Kodi Kura as possible.
