This is my Mom's original recipe.I can boldly say that when I started imitating my mom in my kitchen, I turned into a good cook. Yet, I am no where near to my mom, she is the best cook I’ve ever seen and l want that to be like that forever…There are a ton of recipes from my mom, this is one among them..I am sharing my mom's kerala style Chilli Chicken. This is probably one of the dishes I crave the most on odd days.
