Andhra chilli chicken is a spicy chicken recipe made Andhra-style with lots of green chillies. A perfect accompaniment to rice and curry.
I love Chilli Chicken and Chilli Fish. Or wait, I should say I loved Chilli Chicken. I have been vegetarian for the past 2 months and going strong so far. It’s easier than I thought and although I didn’t want to talk about this too soon, 2 months is a good milestone. I know it’s ironic I am “celebrating” by posting a Chilli Chicken Recipe but this one is from a couple months back and this Green Chilli Chicken came out so good that I couldn’t keep it away from some of chicken lovers out there.
I had bookmarked Sig’s Green Chilli Chicken Recipe ages ago and made it for a few friends finally. I didn’t have enough green chillies to maker her super fiery version so compromised by adding some red chilli powder as well. The colour was beautiful and it was probably one of the easiest Indian chicken recipe I have made. A friend commented that this is how Andhra Chilli Chicken tastes so in case anyone is looking for a recipe for Andhra Chilli Chicken, well, here you go! Here’s another great recipe if you are looking for an easy chicken curry recipe. Also check out this poplar chicken jalfrezi recipe.
