Varutharacha kozhi curry is a traditional chicken recipe from Kerala and is popular among the Knanaya Christians of Kerala. This kottayam chicken curry is best served with Kerala appam or pidi (steamed rice dumplings). Pidi and kozhi curry is usually made for Christmas or Easter.
I will be posting the recipe of traditional Knanaya Christian's "kozhi pidi" next which is a bit different from the usual pidi recipes. The recipe is from my octogenarian aunt, Sunny; whom I always turn for traditional recipes and her recipes never fail.
Okay! back to varutharacha chicken curry...varutharacha means roasted and grinded...so here, the coconut is roasted and grinded and then added to the cooked chicken....thus you get the thick brown gravy.
I have made this recipe as simple and easy as possible; so that all the novice cooks and bachelors can give this traditional dish a try.
