About Chicken Sukka and Neer Dosa Recipe

Chicken Sukka is a dry version of chicken made with a blend of spices and coconut.This is one of the popular Mangalorean dish.The authentic way demands dry roasting all spices and then grinding them.Also dry roasting the coconut and grinding coarsely.The best thing I noted in this recipe is that there is no use of oil in the curry and only ghee is used towards the end to temper the onions.If you can't take ghee then fry in oil,but ghee really enhances flavor and the amount is very less.I have served this with Neer Dosa.Neer Dosa is a very popular, thin and gluten free dosa / pancake/ crepe prepared using rice batter in Mangalore, Udupi region of Karnataka. This dosa requires no fermentation. Rice is ground with water to get a runny batter. ‘Neer’ means water in local language. In konkani it is called panpolo. This dish can be served with jaggery, ghee, chutney, ghee roast or any spicy curry for breakfast / lunch / dinner.Everyone liked it at home,am happy it turned out fragrant and delicious.
