Spicy Chicken Fry with Roasted Coconut

Chicken fry recipes are always inviting with all age groups of non vegetarian population and my family does love chicken fry a lot.How about adding the flavors of roasted coconut in chicken pieces?? mmmm..believe me,its lip smacking. It was just another trial and error,this just clicked away.This chicken masala may taste similar to chammanthi podi.But it gives a very unique flavor and loved it to the core.Do give this simple recipe a try and you'll have guests/family members asking for more.Though the recipe is subdivided in a few steps but it will hardly take away much time & efforts:)

to marinate

chicken with bones or boneless 300gm
red chilly powder 1tsp
garam masala 1 tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
lemon juice 1 tbsp
salt to taste

to coarsely grind
dry red chillies 5
shallots 4-5
grated coconut 3/4 cup

to temper
dry red chillies 2
curry leaves 2 sprigs
lemon juice 1 tbsp
oil 1/3 cup(coconut oil preferably)

-Wash and pat dry the chicken pieces.Marinate the chicken pieces using red chilly powder,pepper powder,garam masala,lemon juice & salt for half an hour.
-Dry roast the grated coconut in a pan along with shallots and dry red chillies until golden brown like for theeyal.Grind/Powder the coconut mixture coarsely without water if possible else add few tsp of water.(I didn't add any water)
-Heat a pan and add oil.Wait till the oil heats up,add dry red chillies and curry leaves.Add in the marinated chicken pieces along with marinade.Cover and cook on low medium flame until cooked.In between toss and turn evenly all sides so that it doesn't stick to bottom.Chicken leaves out water slightly to get cooked and takes about 7-10 mins on low flame.Turn the heat to high,keep stirring the chicken pieces to slightly get browned and the water evaporates if any left out.
-Add the coarsely ground mixture,toss it well.Add salt for the mix and chicken if required.Cover and let the spices blend well,give a minute or two.Add the lemon juice,mix well.
-Turn off heat and serve warm with fried rice/pulao or just steamed rice !!!

Serves ~ 2-3 adults as side dish

* You can use any oil but coconut oil brings out actual flavors.
