Chilli flakes chicken fry – Nadan chicken fry – Kerala chicken fry

I love any fried recipes either it is vegetarian or non-vegetarian. When it comes to non-vegetarian I like to have fries with mutton, chicken and prawns. This recipe I learnt from my grandma home they used to make chicken, fish and beef in this way. The masala used for the marination is so simple and gives so nice taste to the fry. It is a great option as a starter and as a side dish with rice. I cooked it along with Tomato rice yesterday.
