Kodi Vepudu / Andhra Chicken fry / Kozhi Varuval

Kodi vepudu is a spicy andhra chicken fry. Kodi means chicken,vepudu means fry,this is the meaning for this name. I came to taste this dish from a Indian restaurant,next to my apartment. H and me became a very big fan for this dish from that day on. Whenever we feel like having spicy food,then we go for this fry. When  I was carrying Ashwath,this is my ultimate food for my spicy cravings. Being inspired by its taste, I wanted to prepare this at home. It came out very well. This is a very spicy fry, so be cautious while feeding it to the kids. This fry goes very well with sambar rice or rasam.

Cooking the chicken:
* Take a pan ,add the marinated chicken and cook with 1/2 cup water.

* Retain little cooked water from the chicken.

* Slice  red onion,chop the green chillies.
* Take a pan, add oil .Temper with mustard seeds ,urad dal and curry leaves.
* Fry the sliced onion ,green chillies till translucent.
* Add the remaining water from cooked chicken.Let the water gets mixed well with onion.
* Keep the stove on medium.
* Now add cooked chicken and fry till the moisture is evoparated.
* Fry the chicken till it gives out oil.
* Garnish with cilantro ,serve with rice ,dal or rasam.

* Dont over cook the chicken,then it might be hard.
* If you want this dish to be medium spicy,then reduce the green chillies according to your taste.
* Since we are frying the chicken in medium high,there are chances of the chicken to get black.So keep stirring in between.
* While cooking the chicken,add less water.Because there are chances for the chicken to get hard,while evaporating the excess water.

This looks very yum! Did you try grinding the marination masalas along with the onions? I also wonder if the chicken can be cooked in a pressure cooker.
