Chicken Olarthiyathu- Kerala style Spicy Sautéed chicken


In Picture Chicken ularthiyathu and Chicken fried rice
Though it is unsually hot and humid outside for the last two weeks, nothing has stopped me from craving for a hot and spicy  Irachi olarthiyathu. This is my mom's recipe, which she used to make to satisfy both of us.My brother loves beef and wants it all the time. So when it comes to buying meat, Amma always asks my brother( T) what he wants.Of course Beef Olarthiyathu or nadan beef fry.Though i wasnt a big meat eater then, once in a while i get really pissed at this and fight for my rights for chicken  and chicken Fry:).  So its a Beef olarthiyathu Vs Chicken Fry war.(not to mention about the Chicken leg wars) So then my father will tell, okie lets buy chicken today and  T will be really angry.

He is the one who goes to the butcher shop, and many times i know he had lied telling  " Avide kozhi theernnu poyayirunnu"- There is  no chicken left there. and when he is coming back with those black plastic bag - the usual meat cover in kerala, with chicken in it, my Mom makes this recipe,  Chicken Ularthiyathu, so that i will get my rights - chicken and my brother gets what he wants Irachi Olarthiyathu   in the form of chicken.Amma is very supportive of my brother , inspite of the fact that i m the lil girl and he is 7 years older to me,  even today when both of us are married , he is amma's boy!!!


The ingredients are more or less same as we make chicken curry , but the chicken is simmered some more time than usual , till it is dry and all the masala is absorbed by  the chicken pieces...This goes well with anything like Appam , chapati, Rice ...
Recipe for Nadan Chicken ulathiyathu
Serves - 4
Total cooking time :- 1 hour
Recipe source :-( A mix of recipes by mom and Mrs K.M Mathew)
Ingredients:-
Chicken - 1 kg ( i used thighs)

Method
Heat a pan and add all the ingredients in the roast section and toss it for a minute or 2 in a low flame.( stir continously and be sure not to burn it) Remove and grind it to a fine powder. If you are using all powders then roast it in medium flame for a minute and remove. OR You can  use the spice powders without roasting it .
Clean and cut the chicken into small pieces and marinate with 1/2 of the roasted powder , turmeric powder and 1 tsp of crushed ginger and salt to taste. Pressure cook this by adding very little water, for 2 whistles.Set aside.If you are not using pressure cooker , cook this in a vessel by adding lil water( only if needed) for 25 -30 minutes.

Add the remaining roasted powder , lemon juice and toss it well. Add the cooked chickenpieces and cooking liquid , if there is any and combine it well. Saute this mixture for another 15-20  minutes, until it is dry and brown.

Kamalika said...

Lovely dish and beautiful snap dear...

There is one suggestion if you don't mind... your main post is touching the border line of the right column... Go to Edit HTML...then find out main wrapper...there you add padding right:10px; padding left:10px;... if the left one is not required then don’t add....first see the preview version then save it...you can also increase or decrease the px...I hope this will work....if not then I am extremely sorry for bothering you....hope you didn’t mind.....

Nandini said...

Nice click! It's healthy and appetizing!

Babli said...

Kamalika said...

Dear Sarah....
then do like this add-
padding-right:10px;
to the right sidebar-wrapper....see whether it works or not....I have done this HTML coding a long time back....now its just getting off my mind what exactly i coded.....sorry for the inconvenience...

Sharmilee! :) said...

Nithu said...

Looks so good and tempting.

Kamalika said...

Dear Sarah , I worked on the same thing in my page and found it working...please try it again-----

Add--

padding right:20px;
padding left:20px;

Under the " MAin wrapper" section of your HTML coding....if its not working increase the px size...like from 20px to 30px or more....
If this is not working then try---

add-

padding:20px;

UNder the "Right/sidebar wrappper"...

I am sure this will work..as in my coding it is working....

And one more thing make the 'width' of the "outer wrapper" 1300px..
Your site will then fit the screen...
PLs let me know if its working or not....
I am feeling very guilty as i suggested you but the solution is not working...
