Chicken Kuzhambu by pressure cooker (Using Coconut Milk)

Chicken Kuzhambu using coconut milk is the yummy dish when it paired with rice,roti,phulka,appam,idli,dosai etc;Chicken kuzhambu preparation and taste differs from home by home and state by state.Now am here with my mom’s traditional chicken kuzhambu which is so simple and tastes yummy.She prepared 3types of chicken kuzhambu ,each one has unique taste.She always use sambar onion(small onion) for her dishes.

She told the secret of the non-veg dishes remains on the vessel we prepared.Yes...! she told me to not shifting the non-veg dishes to bowls often except the serving bowl.You all experienced that the next day’s kuzhambu tastes yummier than the freshly cooked one.Usually when the dish is reduced to half we shifted to another vessel and so on...,so dont do that for the better and best taste.And the main important tip she advised was to serve the dish after an hour of preparation.This is the time the dish takes to blend all the aroma of ingredients.Adding coconut milk gives nice aroma to chicken kuzhambu.
