You can use either fresh coconut square bite-sized pieces or frozen ones. Don't go for dried coconut. I have tried using both fresh and frozen ones.
Thighs and mixed chicken curry cut pieces will work out for this. I don’t prefer boneless breast piece. It doesn’t have much fat on it. Boneless thigh piece is fine. Just cut it into 2-inch pieces and use it.
This is a traditional Kerala style chicken in spicy brown gravy preparation. I have tried to keep the recipe simple by using simple ingredients, which are most of the time readily available in our kitchens and the method to this flavorful delicacy is very intuitive and easy to follow.Tastes best when prepared with chicken with bone.
Though quite a few spices are used in this gravy, peppercorn is the magic ingredient here which adds a punch to the recipe. But strongly recommend you not to skip any of the ingredients listed.
