Kozhi / Chicken Thoran

We eventually turned to this recipe shared by a friend long time ago when we had no time left for elaborate cooking and were still in a mood to eat some non veg. We knew this recipe had to taste good. Its really simplicity at its best. And thoran of any form not only adds comfort but makes any meal more enjoyable to a true Mallu.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Chicken (boiled and shredded): 3/4 cup
Grate coconut : 1/4 cup
Green chillies: 2-3
Ginger (crushed): 1 teaspoon
Garlic (crushed): 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves: few
Mustard seeds: 1 teaspoon
Dried red chillies: 2-3
Turmeric powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Chilli powder: 1-2 teaspoons
Coriander powder: 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

* For convenience sake, we used the precooked chicken breast in water available in cans in most supermarkets. You could otherwise just cook the chicken meat with some salt and pepper and shred it.

Heat some oil in a pan. Splutter the mustard seeds. Add the dried red chillies, curry leaves. Roughly crush the green chillies, ginger and garlic together. Add this and saute for a  few mins. Now add the shredded chicken. Add the turmeric, chilli and coriander powder and stir well. Cover with a lid and leave it on medium heat  for a few mins before you add the grated coconut. Saute for another 5 mins and the thoran is ready to be served.

Makes a great side for rice or roti.
