    Hi! Kavi – Tried d recipe with paratha & normal chicken. It was simply superb.My husband said dat it tasted like having it in a hotel, d original paratha, salna taste & has recommended me to start a paratha kadai 🙂
    Hereafter i am going to use this as a guest dish. Whenever someone drops in for lunch or dinner will definitely include this dish. Hmmmm…Lip-Smacking One. Thanx for such a great post.

    Hiiiii Akkz,
    Kalakeetenga ponga…..Many have been requesting for thisyou know. Btw, oru doubt. Nattu Kozhi is the Uur Kozhi ryt. At home amma takes hours to cook Uur Kozhi as its very hard. And broiler chicken was softest i remember. Also uur kozhi does not have tat much flesh. Mom used to buy 4 – 5 kg uur kozhi which is almost two chicken. Broiler means she gets 2kg.. Although its hard to separate flesh from Uur Kozhi she does coz we dont like bones. Is it the same in India or uur kozhi is softer there too as america…. romba confusion….

      Hi  Manoo, In India broiler and naatu kozhi chicken, both are fresh one (Uyir kozhi ryt?). In chicken shops we can get cleaned and cut chicken. So cooking naatu  kozhi is not hard. My MIL  buy naatu kozhi for kuzhamu and for gravies and fry she buy broiler chicken. I don't know how much she bought for us. Naatu kozhi is a bit expensive in Tamilnadu. Broiler chicken konjam chakkaiya irukkum. But  naatu kozhi is softer than broiler even bones also tastes good. I feel the same thing in US. Thanks. kavi.

      Hi Rashmi, It's already cleaned chicken. All the gizzards and internal matter would have been removed. Just remove the skin, which is in white color. Cut into pieces and and wash.

    Kavi, unga sambar vellathula kudhichu neechaladikka vandha ennai ippadi emathitteengale… Just kidding. I really expected that it is going to be a sambar. Title speaks the recipe, I think…
