Kundapur Style Chicken Sukka - Restaurant Style

Kundapur Style Chicken Sukka

People from coastal Karnataka belt are very much aware of this popular chicken sukka dish. Today's post is the non-veg recipe from the most popular restaurant in Kundapur - Shetty's Hotel. I love Mangalorean chicken sukka, but this is something different and includes more ingredients for the sukka compared to mangalorean chicken sukka. Taste wise, no compromise, it's- delicious, spicy and mouth watering dish.

Ghee 2 tsp

Onion -2 medium - sliced

Haldi( turmeric powder) - 1/2 tsp

Tomato - 1 chopped

Salt to taste

Chilli powder - 1 tsp

Freshly shredded coconut - 1/2 cup

Chicken - 500g

Coriander leaves for garnishing


Red Chillies 7-8

Dhania (coriander seeds) - 1 tbsp

Methi( fenugreek seeds) - 1/4 tsp

Dalchini 1 inch - 1 piece

Laung (cloves) - 6

Jeera( cumin) - 3/4 tsp

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

Saunf - 1/4 tsp

Few curry leaves

Garlic cloves 15
