When I was making a draft for the announcement of the guest post, I’d like to mention that one of the requirements was a dish from your home country. But I don’t know why I changed my mind – maybe in order not to limit your choices.
When Nimmi told me that she wanted to bring a dish from Kerala, I gladly said that would be great.
Nimmi blogs from Adorable Life. She’s such a sweetheart and she always welcomes you with a smile and warm messages. We met each other during FF. (So thankful of Angie for the FF.) Aside from being passionate about food, she’s also crafty and loves to travel. (Could you take me with you some other time, Nimmi?) :D
Okay, I will stop talking now as Nimmi will start feeding you with her delicious treats –

Now lets get to the recipe…
Chicken Thoran is a typical Kerala cuisine which is really easy to prepare.. At the same time really yummy too.. The combination of chicken & potato is enriched with the coconut mixture..
Here’s the recipe:
Chicken-500 gm( mostly boneless )
Potato-3( chopped )
Mustard seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Onion-1 ( chopped )
Red chilly-2( cut to half )
Coconut oil-2 spoon
Turmeric powder-1/2 teaspoon each for cooking chicken & for thoran
Red chilly powder-1/2 teaspoon each
Coriander powder-1 teaspoon
Pepper powder-1/2 teaspoon
How to make:
1)first of let’s boil chicken in a bowl of water along with red chilly powder,coriander powder,turmeric powder and salt..
2)when the chicken is done, take it out from boiled water and add the potatoes to the same boiling water..and cook it till soft..
3)now separate cooked potatoes from this water and save the left water for further use..
4)now gently grind the chicken flesh without bones to a minced form( don’t over do it!! I used stone spice grinder to prevent this problem)
5)then coarsely grind coconut,cumin seeds and green chillies to thick mixture.
6)now heat a wok, add oil and splutter mustard seeds & red chillies..later add onion and saute well..
7)to this add the grinded coconut mixture and saute well for another couple of mins..
8)now add masala powders and mix well..
9)now add the minced chicken and give a nice stir..cook it for some time..
10)now pour some chicken stock and cook well.. Add the potatoes to this and mix well..
11)the water content should be evaporated completely..!! Cook till you get a nice thick consistency..add more masala powders if needed..
12)add li’l more oil also if needed for mote taste and off the flame!!
Chicken thoran/ Stir Fried Chicken with Coconut & Potato is done!! :D
It would go well with rice/ chapathi or any kind of bread..
