Andhra Chilli Chicken

Andhra Chilli Chicken is my most favorite dish. This dish is a authentic Andhra Pradesh dish. This dish is hot, attractive and very spicy. This dish is the spiciest, oiliest and aromatic. You can find this dish is almost all the Andhra restaurants in various states. We used to order this along with biryani and both goes very well together. This is not a dry item and has lots of spicy gravy with this. You can see lots of green chilli seeds in this gravy. Thus, very spicy and goes well with dosa, plain rice, Appams, parathas, roti, naan (Indian breads), ghee rice and biryani.

  • Number of chilies depend on how spicy they are. I am using 7 as mine are not very spicy.
  • Chicken can be boneless or with bone.
  • Can use ghee or butter instead of oil if you prefer.
  • Optional - Can garnish with Fried Capsicum or Coriander Leaves.
  • If the gravy is not thick then add 1 more tbsp of corn flour dissolved in 1/2 sp water.
