Andhra Chicken Curry – For Recipe Swap

This is my first time participating in a FB Recipe Swap Group. I was to swap with Payal. She is an awesome blogger,blogs at Dont give a fork. She had amazing recipes there but I eyed on this Spicy Andhra Chicken Curry from the time I visited her blog. Do visit her blog to drool over and to try some droolworthy recipes.


Andhra Chicken Curry,as the name suggests is from Andhra Pradesh. It is a South Indian state famous for it’s spicy food. They include peanuts in most of their dishes. This curry too have peanuts. The awesome taste comes from the freshly grounded Peanuts and chili masala along with sesame seeds and poppy seeds. I was doubtful if my husband would like this curry as he doesn’t like peanuts in a curry. But to my surprise he loved it and even my daughter licked the bowl off.

How did I made Andhra Chicken Curry

The main masala of this curry is made from Dry red chilies, roasted peanuts and roasted sesame seeds and poppy seeds. It thickens the curry and gives a unique flavor to the dish. This is my first time trying chicken with peanuts but I’m not disappointed.Once the masala is ready then the curry is made easy.The chicken is slow cooked in the masala till  cooked for desired consistency.

I followed the original recipe with some changes. I reduced the number of Dry red chilies as I serve this for my kids. And in the original recipe she used coconut milk ( which I wish to use) but I used whole milk as I didn’t had Coconut milk with me. Other than that I followed the exact recipe and it turned out awesome. I served this with Ghee rice. You can serve this with Carrot ChapathiPulao, . It also tastes great with Puttu.

  6. I love curries and I also love peanuts in them so this curry is definitely one I’d love too. It sounds really delicious although I’d probably have to reduce the chillies even more if I wanted my children to eat it. They love curries but one chilli is usually the maximum I can put in for them at the moment!

    1. You can always adjust the spice level..I do that always…with using four chillies was not very spicy for us as my daughter was having without complaining of spice..she is very sensitive to spicy food…still you can always adjust…hope you love it when you try… Thank you 😊

  7. This looks so tempting. I could almost smell it. 😀 Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday party. x

  15. This looks soo good! I have a love/hate relationship with peanuts. I love the flavor, but often the dish feels dry in my mouth. However, when adding so many amazing things and making a curry sauce out of it, it looks so flavorful and utterly delicious.

  21. I tend to make kormas when I make curries because I usually make any other chicken curries too spicy for the rest of my family and I’m the only one who ends up eating them! This sounds so good though and I love peanut in my curries. Maybe I’ll just make a small, single-serve batch 🙂
