This speedy chicken pickle recipe is so delicious and pairs perfectly with Idly and Curd rice. It tastes spicy and vinegary due to flavors of red chilies, garlic and white vinegar. The vinegar adds a sour flavor and acts as a preservative as well.
I was inspired to try this recipe when I tasted this in a Food festival that was organized at Nandambakkam. Unlike the previous food festivals that were shabbily put up, this event was a well planned. From the entrance, to the stall decor, to the food presentations, everything was mesmerizing and mind-blowing.Kudos to the event management team . Here is the list of food festivals.Dont Miss them!!!
