Chicken Varuval/ Chicken Dry Curry

Wow it has been 9 days since I posted any recipe here, it's all because I went back to my parent's place. I cooked a lot of dishes but no time to update my blog, so I have saved all the pictures so that I can write when I have time. I don't have much time to write so let's go direct to my recipe for Chicken Varuval.


500g chicken thigh (cut small)
2 onions sliced
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp cumin seed
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
2 sprigs of curry leaves
2 bird eye chili
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp meat curry powder
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tbsp chili sauce
1/4 cup of water
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

In a bowl, marinate chicken with turmeric powder and salt, set aside

Deep fry marinated chicken in hot oil until chicken is half cooked, 
drain oil from chicken and set aside

In a pan, pour 2 tbsp of oil and fry onion until its translucent

Now add in ginger garlic paste, cinnamon stick, star anise, curry leaves, cumin, 
bird eye chili and fry for a minute

Add in fried chicken and stir with the above ingredients, then add meat curry powder, 
chili powder and water, let all the ingredients above simmer and thicken

Our Chicken Varuval is now ready to be served!
