      Pavithra, if you are preparing for more than 4 & if its like the main side dish then you may have to double… orelse just use the same masala, add extra chili & Coriander powder along with few chicken pieces and adjust consistency with coconut paste/milk. (1 pound or 1/2 kg should be perfect for a family of 4)Thanks

    I made this chicken kolumbu today, and to tell you it came out so well. The taste is really superb.. My neighbors and my family enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I did my under graduation in Erode where the original muniyandi vilas was started..And the place still stands as a food heaven in my memory.This recipe is an exact replica..Since my husband is a eggetarian I tried the same recipe with egg and potaotes ,turned out into a great dis.Thank you for the perfect recipe..

    Looks so yummy..can’t wait to try them.. Would you have the recipe for the Seeraga samba arisi biryani? That looks delicious.

    I tried this 2 times now, and it came super! Thanks a lot for the instructions, I enjoy cooking because of your website. My roommate was very impressed with when I cooked this.

    Hi, I take over the kitchen on the weekend (Sunday) as my family loves the change in the tastes. Not used to cooking with sesame oil and hence was a bit apprehensive. On a scale of 0 to 5 we have rated this @ 3.5. Coming from Tamil Nadu with roots from Madurai/Salem and away from India for the last 35 years your recipe sure brought back fond memories. Thanks. Sam

    I tried this yesterday, came out well, but the color of the gravy did not match the one shown here. It was dark brown. Any reason behind it, mullai?

    1. Mullai

      It depends, if you saute your masala for longer the color turns intense or dark brown. Tomato, turmeric, red chilies, coconut…all play a part. So adding little extra of these can also have effect on colour. Even mine doesn’t turn the same colour everytime, with few more trials you will learn to adjust the proportions to make it your way. Thanks.

    Thanks Mullai. Chicken kolambu came out very good. I did add more rice and pottu-kadalai as my wife likes kolambu to be like gravy. We tried it with Idly and it was tasty. Thanks.

    absolutely loved your recipe..this is soo different from how I usually make chicken curries. came across your site when i searched for Chicken Kozhambu as my husband has been asking me to make it since long time! i used close to 2lbs of chicken and 2 cups of water for the same measurement and came out great. I usually dont follow the recipe measurements while making indian recipes but somehow your confident ‘ingredients table’ made me follow and it was awesome..will checkout your other recipes too!! thanks!

    Hi Mullai, I have referred to your recipes earlier. And I was looking for a standard version of Muniyandivilas recipe for a long time. I tried it on sunday and it was excellent. My husband and brother had a nice treat relishing this kuzhambu. Thanks for posting this recipe.

    Dear Mullai,
    I tried this recipe yesterday and it really came out well and yummy. It tasted the same like the Muniyadi vilas chicken kuzhambhu back in India. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi Mullai,

    Could you please let me know whether all the ingredients to make the masala powder be added to the pan at the same time or should be added one after another in a specific order to prevent burning?

    Tried this recipe on sunday.. jus avoided coconut in the recipe all thro’ out as couple of my family members have BP n sugar.. so increased the split roasted gram to double the amount.. was wondering if the outcome would be fine or not due to the slight alteration i did.. it was splendid.. Thanks!!
