Chicken Gravy with Roasted Masala

Chicken Gravy with Roasted Masala

Chicken Gravy with Roasted Masala is a traditional chicken dish from Andhra made with roasted spices and makes a delicious side dish with biryani or roti.

When Amma made this a couple of months ago, I was making the biryani while she said she wanted to make a gravy dish. She said she used to make this version many years ago and had stopped making it for some reason.

Kids liked it a lot and even before that verdict, I decided I would click it for me to share here. While the biryani tastes great as such, we always make gravy as it will take care of dinner as well.

I haven’t shared much of nonveg dishes off late even though we make new ones often. This month I decided I would share it for the fourth week and wanted to do all three weeks. However, somehow I am still being lazy and couldn’t complete all three days in between.

I thought I would anyway share this week’s dishes and hope my friends are fine with me taking this liberty. This recipe is surely a keeper as kids wanted this to be repeated. May was very quick to go and we are here on the fourth week, were we can share our own recipes.

  1. The roasted spice paste is so flavourful Valli. I am sure it would add so much taste to the gravy. Though I do roasted chicken often, I am yet to try gravies. This one with the biryani looks wonderful.

  2. Freshly roasted masala always adds unique taste to the dish. Love the addition of mint leaves in masala. so flavorful and tempting chicken masala
