Preparation for Pallipalayam Chicken
Clean and wash the chicken pieces well. I use Nattu kozhi / Country chicken. You can also use broiler chicken.
Deseed 15 – 18 Red chillies by breaking and removing the seeds.
Take 15 – 20 Shallots and pound it well.
Keep ½ inch coconut pieces ready!
How to make Pallipalayam Chicken
In a pan, add 3 tbsp oil. Add De-seeded Red chillies and curry leaves. Take care not to burn the chillies.
Add pounded Shallots and fry for 2 mins in medium flame.
Now add turmeric powder and ginger-garlic paste. Cook till raw smell leaves.
Add cleaned Chicken pieces, salt and mix well till the masala coats the chicken evenly.
I have used Nattu kozhi / Country chicken and it takes lot of time to cook. So I’m adding 1 cup of water now. Add water and cook covered in medium flame for 30 – 40 mins.
If you are using Broiler chicken, there is no need to add water. Chicken will cook in its own juice. Cook covered in low flame for 30 – 40 mins stirring now and then.
When chicken is cooked, add coconut pieces and mix well.
Roast for 2 more minutes in medium flame.
Switch off the flame and serve hot.
- This is a spicy dish, so adjust spice level based on your preferences.
- Adding coconut gives a nice taste to Pallipalayam chicken. When you eat chicken pieces along with coconut, you will taste the spiciness of the chicken as well as mild sweetness from the coconut.
