Chicken peralan | Curried chicken stir fry | Kukskitchen

A traditional Keralan chicken peralan gives an earthy touch to your meal with fresh ingredients made in a simple way. It goes well with Ghee rice, yougurt and pappadam. The recipe is one that my friend from college Serin hand wrote for me. It has been one of my favourite chicken recipes ever since.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
