Really surprised to see this Quick response from you.Really great!Sure I will let know once I tried the recipe.
Once again thanks a lot!

Priya Naidu said...

Thanks Rajini!
The recipe turned well.As per my knowledge the taste of prasadam depends on the amount of ghee we add in prasadam.really Thanks a lot!

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Priya,

That's a relief. Actually it's been long time since I made that. Almost 10 yrs back for my house warming thing. I am glad it turned out great. Yup, ghee and jaggery too plays an important role in this.

They were astonished :)
Thanks for the recipe mam.. :)

navanik said...

hi rajani.... i wanted to ask you which brand of soy sauce do u recommend for making chilli chicken?I remember making another chicken dish with kroger's lite soy..it dint taste gud......i stay in u.s...

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Srikar,

Thanks for your comments. I am glad you and your friends liked the dish.


Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Navani,

I mormally use lite soya sauce. Brand means I hardly use soya sauce. Buy in a good chinese store, small pack. If you like it stick to that.

Hi Rajini garu,

Mee recipes biweekly try chestunnannu one by one.

My first recipe from your blog, Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani with only one thing different - Mint Chutney. We absolutely love it and we were just hogging. My wife eats only as needed, but when I saw the way she ate meal with this recipe I was amazed how much she liked it. Super duper hit. Balakrishna Muddula Mavayya anta hit ayyindi.

Second one I tired was chilli chicken. The second one was super hit. I tried this two months back. And myself and Rupa both loved it. We gave it to some friends also. They absolutely loved it. Chiranjeevi Pasivaadi Pranam and Trinetrudu rendu kalipinanta hit anukondi.

Third one I tried was Chicken 65. Even though Rupa did not catch on, I absolutely loved it. Super hit for me. Nenu Anand movie rating icchesaanu.

Fourth one I tried was Chicken Pulav. I ate so much and also the food was so rich that I did not eat for a day after that. Super hit for me. Ofcourse Rupa ki rangu, ruchi, chikkadanam kaavaali. Even though she likes it she is a fan of Biryani and Chilli Chicken for now. Srikanth Pelli Sandadi kanna koddiga ekkuve.

Today I am going to try Kodi Vepudu and will let you know in my next blog on how it went.

Thank you very much for awesome recipes. This is keeping the cook in me still alive and also helps me taste recipes that I wanted to for a long time.

Best regards,

P.S: Ajinomotto or Mono Sodium Gulatamate (MSG) is an ingredient that I would be hesitant to use even though various studies could not conclude. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate

Hi Srini,

Sujana said...

Hi Rajani,your recipes are awesome .I tried andhra chicken curry and prawns curry,they turned out very good.
I am planning for my son's birthday party and want to try chilli chicken or pepper chicken.
I want to know if they are semi gravy or for snack.


Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Sujana,

Thanks for your feed back!!!

They both are semi dry version, you could serve as a snack, but they would be hot for my, palate chicken 65 is also good.

Why don't you try manchurian style or kodi pakodi.

Hi, Am planning to try this in the afternoon. Is this the same as Chicken65?

Unfortunately, I don't have Ajinomoto :( Would that make a huge difference to the taste? Any substitute?

Will let you know how I go.

Thanks for posting your recipe :)
