Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu

Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu is a popular South Indian dish, specifically from the state of Kerala in India. It is a traditional chicken fry recipe that is known for its spicy and flavorful taste. “Nadan” means traditional or local, “Kozhi” means chicken, and “Varuthathu” means fried.

To make Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu, you will need the following ingredients:


  • Chicken pieces (with or without bone)
  • Ginger-garlic paste
  • Turmeric powder
  • Red chili powder
  • Coriander powder
  • Garam masala powder
  • Curry leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Coconut oil (traditionally used in Kerala cuisine)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)

Here’s a basic recipe to prepare Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu:

  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, curry leaves, and salt. Make sure the chicken is coated well with the spices. Allow it to marinate for at least 30 minutes to enhance the flavors.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a deep pan or kadai over medium heat.
  3. Add the marinated chicken pieces to the hot oil and fry them in batches. Ensure that the chicken is cooked evenly and turns golden brown. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and burning.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked and crisp, remove it from the pan and drain excess oil on a paper towel.
  5. Repeat the frying process with the remaining chicken pieces.
  6. Serve the Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu hot, garnished with fresh curry leaves and lemon wedges.

Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu is typically enjoyed as a starter or side dish with rice, roti (Indian bread), or as an accompaniment to meals. It pairs well with coconut chutney or yogurt dip. Adjust the spice levels according to your preference.

Please note that cooking times and ingredient quantities may vary based on personal preferences and the size of the chicken pieces. It’s always recommended to follow a detailed recipe for more precise instructions.
