Green chilly chicken , Andhra special

I first tasted Andhra chilly chicken in a popular Andhra restaurant named ‘Nandini’ in Bangalore many years back . Ever since that I’m in love with this dish . Though I eat only the gravy it is one of my favourite dish . My husband makes it a point to get Andhra chilly chicken and Andhra chicken Biryani whenever he visits Bangalore. The taste is totally different. Initially I could not make the taste but as we relish the dish we get to know the punch . This recipe came out somewhat similar but I had reduced the quantity of chillies and made medium spicy but next time  I would want  to make it spicy just the way as restaurant style . It is that super spicy . This recipe  was suggested by my friend Lakshmi which is supposed to be her relative Saritha Bhat’s recipe . I love dishes with simple recipes . It saves a lot of time. Many a times the simpler the dish the more tastier it is .
