Pichi potta kozhi is a South Indian, spicy, tasty, simple, street-side chicken dish made with shredded chicken. This dish is popular in the Southern region of Tamil Nadu.
This is one among the chicken dish which I cook normally at home. In the beginning, me and my husband liked this dish a lot and now my kids too love this❤
I adopted this recipe from the cook book “Pavaiyarkaana Palsuvai Malar” which was given to me when I got married and had to leave Mumbai. If I get any guests at home, I would read the book and cook the dishes.
I found this pichi potta kozhi recipe very interesting as it is very famous in Thoothukudi, my hometown. I have made this recipe for most of the guests at home. Now after 15 years, definitely I would have added some changes to the original recipe.
I think my interest for cooking started to grow with that book!! I don’t have that book with me now but still could remember the name of the book very well😊
Coming to the recipe, it can be made with both the chicken with bones and boneless chicken. I have made it with boneless chicken. If you are using chicken with bones in it, add some soft bones to the shredded chicken pieces and it would taste much better.
This dish is definitely spicy and mouth-watering one!! I would like the chicken to be little juicy, so I haven’t made the very dry version.
Pichi potta kozhi goes well with rasam& rice, sambhar & rice and also with chapati, roti.
