Description

Drawing inspiration from South Asian cuisine, this Spicy Indian Chettinad Chicken is rich and aromatic. Fresh chili peppers and coriander seeds are ground in a mortar and pestle into a paste that will add a punch of spice to this tasty chicken dish. The addition of ginger, turmeric, and cumin add additional heat as well as a variety of flavor. The chicken is simmered in this mixture, allowing it to soak up all of the flavor. Best served alongside basmati rice and fresh naan.
