No matter which part of India you are in, each region has a spell-bounding cuisine with distinct flavours, unique ingredients and cooking techniques. The shift is quite noticeable as when you move from north Indian to south India or vice-versa, the flavours, ingredients and cooking technique change completely. The rustic and greasy chicken curries of the north transforms into fiery, bold ones in south. What doesn't change is our excitement to nosh each chicken curry with equal enthusiasm. Be it the one layered with oodles of cream and butter or the one cooked in mustard seeds and coconut milk, each one of it sounds equally delicious, isn't it?
And if you too are a fan of south Indian chicken recipes, you would know how the sizzling chicken 65 or the creamy Coorgi chicken are irresistibly delicious. Yet there are some south Indian chicken recipes that aren't too popular and are truly the hidden gems of the regional cuisine. Chicken Ularthiyathu, for instance, is a mouth-watering chicken masala that is brimming with the fresh flavours of cinnamon, cloves, aniseed, coconut and cardamom in a homemade masala. Chicken Ularthiyathu is a popular dish from Kerala, a state known for non-vegetarian delicacies. It has thick masala gravy that is served with lime rice for a wholesome meal!
