Kodi Vepudu ~~ Andhra Chicken Fry ( Restaurant style )

Kodi vepudu is a spicy chicken fry made with lots of masalas, yogurt, chilies and curry leaves. Serve

 it hot steamed rice. I love to have it with hot and spicy  Rasam rice. Can be served as an appetizer or

 as a side dish for roti, chapati and rice.
