Chicken Masala (Dry) with Homemade Meat/Chicken Roasted Spices Powder Mix

Chicken Masala (Dry) with homemade Meat/Chicken Roasted Spices Powder Mix is a very tasty dish. The taste and fragrant of homemade masala enriches the dish taste and texture. The highlight of this dish is its dry texture so I avoid water in this recipe. There is sufficient water in the chicken meat, which will be enough for this recipe and its cooking process . It is a typical Kerala style dish because I made this recipe with Kerala’s signature ingredients coconut oil,  spices and garnish with fried curry leaves. That also gives a special taste and aroma in this recipe. Chicken Masala is a good side dish with boiled rice, chapatti, naan etc.. Try this authentic kerala chicken delicacy and enjoy!
