Kodi Kura/ Andhra Chicken Curry


Ingredients:

Chicken with bones - 750 g (use mixed pieces, diced in to big bite size pieces, wash remove excess water from it)
Chilli powder - 3 tsp or more (I like non vege dishes to be hot)
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Ginger and Garlic paste - 3 tsp each

Marinate chicken pieces with gg paste, turmeric and chilli powder until needed.

*Oil - (when u pour oil it should cover the whole area of the surface of the cooking dish)
Curry leaves - 2 sprigs

Onions - Chopped finely (qty if u put chicken pieces in a plate onions should be half the qty of chicken in a plate)

Kashmiri chilli powder - 2 tsp
*Home made Masala Powder - 4 tsp

Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - handful
(chopped finely)

Proceed:

1) Heat a large non.stick pan which is heavy based underneath, add oil as described heat it up,
add curry leaves crisp a little add onions and fry until light brown.

2) Add marinated chicken pieces along with the marination and fry until chicken looses it's pink colour and water which releases it. Add now masala powder, kashmiri chilli powder and fry.

3) Add 1 and 1/2 cups of water bring to boil and simmer for 10 mins.cover. keep stirring time to time.

4) Add salt to taste, following with coriander leaves mix and cook until chicken is cooked through until way is formed when u slide the spatula and oil floats on top.

Serve with Rice or Garelu and Yoghurt on side.

Note :

1) Home made masala (no need to roast the spices) :-

6 tsp Coriander seeds, 2 tsp Poppyseeds, 10 Cloves, 8 Cardamom, Cinnamon stick 2 inch, 1 petal of Star anise (opt)- grind these in to powder using coffee grinder. Remaining powder keep it closed in airtight container or use for other recipes which I have used in earlier posts.

2) If u think there is lot of oil after u finished cooking rest for 1 hr or so, oil which comes up u can take it off with the help of a spoon.

3) Can add water 1/2 cup more.

4) If you are lucky to get Natu kodi (this is what we call in Andhra) it tastes even delicious.

Left over Twist:

If you got left over chicken curry then do Chicken Pulao with it. Instead of adding chicken and cutting onions, I simply add this curry along with the spices I have mentioned in there and it is quick and quite easy too.

Meaning (Spices):

Kodi = Chicken
White Poppy seeds = Gasagasalu (in Telugu)

Paul said...

Half done recipe what do you mean by add the masala! are you cooking chicken or are you a chicken ?

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Paul,
I understand you came here through seraching Kodi Pulusu. So, this is Kodi Kura which is an Andhra dish.Where as Kodi pulusu is all comes from Rayalaseema area, they both are different in cooking styles and masalas.

I have written it in plain english. So no need of a brainer here to understand what I have written. Why don't you read entire text before commenting. What do you mean by adding masala, it is home made masala powder which is added when needed.

If you didn't understand any of my dishes, then try to be polite in your language while asking. I can call you all sorts of name, but then there is no difference in you and me right............

cheers

shilpa.kanakamedala said...

rajani,
Iam shilpa.Today evening im gonna try kodi kura but I didn't find kashmiri chilli pdr in Indian store.Where can I find tht? and the masala Ive to grind the raw ingredients or saute it.Plz make it clr.plz respond by 4'O clock :)

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi shilpa,
Find them in packets (for ex-Everest) or they will sell them loose, ask the store manager they will guide you, normally every Indian store sell them.

For masala grinding grind it raw no sauteeing needed, we saute only in curry.

Hope this helped you, best of luck!

cheers

Thx for ur quick response. I have a request for you. Could you post few more variations for chicken curry ? Maybe chicken curry made in different places in andhra ..or different spices so that we can get different flavors.

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Fuzzy,

There are a quite a number of regional dishes in Andhra. Like Chicken Pulusu from Rayalaseema. I still has to master in chicken pulusu though to get that authentic taste of Rayalaseema, If I do I will definitely going to post it for you.

Hi

The sheer sight of the chicken curry is mouthwatering.... but I guess this exact description of the receipe is also in the website of Rayalseema Ruchulu, the famous restaurant in Hyderabad...:)

Rajani Rayudu said...

HI Rachita,

Even if you put copy rights every one is just doing cut and paste thing. this recipe is Andhra dish, in Rayalaseema they never cook this dish but do only Kodi Pulusu. They copied my recipe with different bloggers picture. I am sorry to say bunch of Idiots............

cheers

Aseem Saxena said...

Dear Rajani,

This is a great recipe... I have had some excellent Andra meals some 10 years ago... but could never forget the taste...

This recipe helped me relive the taste...

Some queries:

1. Do we have to roast the spices before grinding them?

2. Will be obliged if you could tell is how much oil in Cups. That will help for a neophyte cook like me.

3. How do I mail you the photo of my Kodi Kora?

4. What oil would be the most authentic to use for this Andra cooking (or for this dish)?

Regards,

Aseem Saxena

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Aseem,

Thanks for your lovely feed back. I am happy to read that you enjoyed it.

for your query -

1) No need to roast the spices. Grind these in coffee grinder machine as it grinds finely.

2) It depends on the dish you are making roughly would be 1/2 cup.

3) You can mail me through my blog that is rayudu.rajani@gmail.com.

4) I use only Rice Bran Oil, which is very good, it retains the smell of spices. Normally in Andhra we cook with peanut or sunflower oil but do not use Mustard OIl or Coconut oil or even sesame oil or even Olive oil for this dish.

Hope this clarify your tiny doubts in making the dish.

Hi Rajani.

I tried your recipe as it said Kodi Kura. I gave up on recipies online. But, the curry name sounded authentic and so is the curry. I have always wanted to make good chicken curry. But mine never comes out right. My hubby stopped bringing home chicken as it never comes out good. Now thanks for sharing your recipe.
We absolutely loved it when I made this Kura.
He now asks me to make Kodi Kura every weekend.
We totally fell in love with this recipe.

Thank you very much for sharing Kodi Kura

devi said...

hi rajanigaru,

one quick question.i want to make veg pulao.shall i substitute chicken with veg in your chicken pulav?plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz answer me as early as possible plz

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Devi,

instead do with kobbari annam recipe. by adding veges like potato, carrot, dried green peas (soaked overnight and cooked), while adding fry until moisture goes away then add basmati rice and continue the same procedure. can add lemon juice little bit to give tart taste + while frying veges add 1 -2 tbsp dried mint. if you don't have lemon then opt for tomato and fry until becomes mushy. can add my kodi kura masala say about 1 tsp along with 1/2 tsp chilli powder and turmeric 1/2 tsp.

let me know how it went.

cheers

Hi,

Thanks for posting this recipe! Well written and the final outcome looks yum :)

I'm planning on trying this tomorrow for a Lunch that I'm hosting. Quick question - Would it be okay to add tomatoes to this recipe?

Cheers,
Pratiba

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Pratiba,

I wouldn't recommend. try this version once you are comfortable try using small qty of chicken with tomatoes and see.

Rajani garu,

Tried several versions of Chicken curry recipes available online,nothing came as tasty as your recipe, I tried and served it to fellow European colleagues, though it was spicy to them, they liked it a lot. The recipe was simple, less ingredients yet tasty, will try your other recipes also, keep sharing....

Rajani garu,

I have a question. I usually find that if I fry the chicken before adding the masala etc, it kind of becomes hard and later the masala/gravy etc does not soak in it.

How do you solve this issue? What am I doing wrong?

Would appreciate your reply. Thank you for your blog.

Regards,
Raghu

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Raghu garu,

for washed chicken, marinate chicken first with chilli powder, turmeric and gg paste minus salt. if you add salt while marinating it become hard. once onion fried lightly add marinated chicken cook on medium low, y because we have added gg paste it will stick to the bottom of the pan. once looses pink color and water shows up then add masala podi just masala fry avvali ante.............

cooking should be done by keeping lid on top always.

hope it helped your question.

cheers

Pathuri Rajendra Chowdary said...

hi i tried this chicken curry receipe, everything done ,but after cooking chicken smells, i have cooked this in ELECTRIC RICE COOKER ,
If this will not suit for electric rice cooker ,can u post receipes for electric rice cooker?

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Rajendra,

This curry is not use for electric rice cooker. If you got pressure cooker pan, then it is much better. If it is natu kodi only you have to put weight on top otherwise no need while boiling.

I cook Kobbari annam in electric rice cooker. check this link.

Best of luck!

Nita said...

Loved the details in the recipe - even an amateur cook can prepare this easily.I shall make this tonigh for my daughter, who needs to avoid tomatoes. I am a vegetarian,as such could not give you feed back. The curry looks heavenly and I may prepare some soy chunks curry or panir curry for me with the same masala. Thank you much!

Rajesh said...

Hi Rajini garu,

Yesterday I tried this recipe, it turned out really awesome. Thank you for the recipe, could you please suggest me how can I get extra gravy with the same taste

Rajani Rayudu said...

no need to fry the masala before grinding.

regarding star anise it is optional, still stays way yummy. try and let me know. thanks.

I love Indian non veg recipes. Especially Andhra chicken curry recipe. This is best combination for Jonna rotte recipe i think so. Thanks for sharing. Best platform for learners who are trying to learn how to cook south Indian recipes.

I always same there is no food like grandma/Mummy's food..I was able to make this recipe and my husband loved it. thank you blogger. Readers This recipe is easy and uses the basic ingredients.
