kozhi mulakittath ,Chicken mulakittath or chicken Red chili curry is a spicy and easy (ever easy) chicken recipe to prepare. Need only 20 to 25 minutes to prepare this.
- Chicken : 250 gm
- Onions: 2 nos (Chop into small pieces)

Clean the chicken and cut into medium sized pieces.
Crush Ginger-garlic-green chilies in a mixer.
In chicken pieces add 1 tbs red chili powder, 1 tbs coriander powder, 1 tbs ginger-garlic-green chili paste, salt and 1 tbs lemon juice. Mix all together well and keep it aside at least for 30 minutes.
In a pan add 2 tbs of oil , once heated add crushed Ginger-garlic-green chilies paste. Saute well. Then add curry leaves, onion and saute until it turns it color to medium brown color. Then add tomato pieces and mix it well. Saute it well until it combined with onion. Then add chicken pieces.
Either you can cook chicken in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles and mix with masala. We prefer to cook the chicken along with onion and tomato. This take more time to cook the chicken. In the earlier case you can make the curry in 10 minutes.
Add some water based on gravy needed.
Add 1/2 tbs Turmeric powder, 1 tbs red chili powder(based on spice level add required red chili powder) , 1/2 tbs garam masala, 1 tbs pepper powder , required salt and mix it well.
Then cook the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes.Once chicken cooked, add coriander leaves . cook for 1 minutes. Off the flame….Add 2 tbs coconut oil on the top. Mix and serve.
