Kodi Iguru / Chicken in caramelised onions

Once I was searching for a new chicken recipe so that I could try something which i had  not tried before and I bumped into this recipe from Nagalakshmi’s (Nags) Edible Garden .

A word about Nags. She is my S-i-l’s classmate and I met her first time at my marriage. As I was interested in cookery, my S-i-l introduced me to Nag’s blog and from then on, I am a follower of her recipes and photography tips. She is indeed a good chef, great photographer and a good writer. I must tell you, I have learnt a whole lot of new stuff from her blog.

This Kodi iguru is an Andhra dish which is made in different ways, but I liked this method a lot as this is so easy and very delicious side dish for rice or chappathis.

  1. Chicken pieces- 250gms
  2. Cinnamon sticks- 3nos
  3. Cardomom pods- 3nos
  4. Cloves- 6nos
  5. Star Anise- 2nos
  6. Dry Red chillies- 7-8nos
  7. Turmeric powder- 1tsp
  8. Fennel seeds- 1tsp
  9. Coriander powder- 1tbsp
  10. Oil- 1tbsp

  12. Onions- 1no
  13. Curry leaves- few
  14. Ginger-garlic paste- 1tbsp
  15. Tomatoes- 1no
  16. Salt- as required

  1. Grind ingredients 2 to 9 to a powder.
  2. In a kadai, heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add the chopped onions and curry leaves.
