ABOUT Andhra chicken Curry RECIPE

Andhra style chicken curry also called Kodi Kura ,is a spicy gravy chicken I had tasted in one of the Indian restaurants here. I really liked the taste and wanted to try out at home. So did some research and prepared this wonderful spicy Andhra Chicken. The curry can be made watery or you can make it completely dry.
