Coorg chicken fry

Coorg is a small hill station,a tourist spot situated in Karnataka,close by to Mysore and we have visited that place to the maximum.It is few hours from Mangalore and we have our own lodging too….It is famous for its spices and aromatic coffee powder. I suggest it is one of the must place to visit…Coming back to the dish,I wanted to cook  something dry and ofcourse new recipe and  I found  this recipe in Seema D Shenoy’s page  and the result was very tasty. I’m not sure whether this is the traditional coorg dish but tastewise it was truly good.For more information on coorg refer wiki.
