Chickiporicha Kozhi Fry (scrambled Chicken Fry)

This is something every mom in a Non-vegetarian Kerala household would give their kids with rotis and rice in their school days. To save one's child from choking on the bone we make boneless chicken in this scrambled form and add it our paranthas, dosas, rice and make it a tiffin item. My mom used to call this her version of chili chicken and we believed it till I was 15. Maybe it is the scrambling in coconut oil effect, this taste always makes me nostalgic.

Now the oil would have infused with curry leaves flavour. To this oil add the ginger- garlic paste and saute well.
Once the ginger- garlic paste becomes brown add the onions and saute till it is translucent.

Once you saute the powders add the shredded chicken and stir fry till the chicken it crunchy.
Do this stir fry in a cast iron pan, this will make the chicken crunchier.
