Thai Chicken Cakes

Savoury or sweet ? That’s the question I ask D before he heads to school. His choice helps me decide what to make as evening snack. This time he was a bit specific.”Mom, I want something made with chicken.” Later J comes up with another demand. “Make something light for dinner, maybe a salad.” All I

Chicken Iguru- Andhra Style Curry

Though I had heard the name Chick Iguru plenty of times during our stay in Hyderabad, I never really got to taste or make it. So, the other day, when a friend of mine asked me if I have cooked it, I decided to give it a shot. Next step was to search the net. But sadly, the more I looked into different recipes, the more confused I was. On enquiring with some Telugu speaking friends, I learnt that Iguru means semi- gravy. So after comparing a few recipes and understanding the common ingredients, I decided to try it my way. Whether it tastes like the authentic Iguru is yet to be known. But we ended up wiping our plates clean 🙂
