Chicken Sukka - Mangalore Style

Chicken Sukka

Chicken sukka basically means dry chicken.While I was doing my post graduation,there was a Mangalore friend who was my roommate,she used to prepare this in our room
whenever she got a chance to cook as this was quite easy and not much time consuming,so this recipe is from my friend ,simple and tastes good too.I had noted down the recipe in a small pocket dairy .Last time when i had been to my hometown i found a book lying somewhere above the cupboard and started going through that......,my goodness found so many funny,good and stupid things out of which one best thing was this recipe :)
