Natu kodi pulusu (chicken curry)

Natu kodi pulusu (chicken curry) is a delicacy in Telugu states.

It is usually served with fried rice or normal rice or poori or any garelu(lentil fritters).

Here I have served with garelu(moong dal fritters).


Chicken: 1 whole bird,cut into curry pieces.

Onion: 2 large finely chopped

Ginger garlic paste: 4 tablespoons

Poppy seeds: 2 tablespoons

Dry coconut powder: 4 tablespoons

Garam masala: 2 teaspoons

Masala or coriander powder: 4 tablespoons

Red chilli powder: 4 tablespoons

Turmeric: 1 tablespoon

Salt: as per taste

Oil: 50ml

Mint leaves: few finely chopped

Coriander leaves: few finely chopped

shajeera or caraway seeds: 1/2 teaspoon

Cinnamon: 1/2 inch stick

Green chillies: 2 optional

Water: 4 cups

Remove skin and fat and cut chicken into curry pieces and keep it ready.

Now grind poppy seeds to fine powder,later add coconut to this powder and grind them to smooth paste with little water and keep it ready.

Now take a pot or a wide deep pan and add oil,once it heats up add caraway seeds, cinnamon stick,onions and green chillies,mint and coriander leaves.

Once onions are golden brown add turmeric,ginger garlic paste and let them incorporate into onions.

Now add poppy seeds and coconut paste and let it fry for 5 minutes on slow flame and  later add chicken.

Mix it well and close the lid and let the chicken cook for 5 - 10 minutes on slow flame.

Once the chicken is half cooked add red chilli powder,salt,garam masala and cook for another 10 minutes.

Now add water,coriander powder and cook on high with lid on for 10 - 15 minutes or until you have nice thick liquid gravy.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

Happy cooking😊😊
