Few days back, a friend of ours had requested me to put up some South Indian recipes. That set me thinking..What should I put up ?? After racking my brains for a while, I decided on trying out Chicken Peralan, a chicken curry with a thick gravy. This recipe was something that I hadn’t tried for a long time. What better opportunity than this to brush up my memory? πŸ™‚

Usually what I do is just put a little bit of this, a little bit of that and go about with my experimenting. But such is not the case when you are putting up a recipe for the world to see. I had to give the right measurements of ingredients as well. So everytime I add something, I would run to my little notebook and note it down. Finally.. presenting my ” Chicken Peralan” recipe to my wonderful readers!!
