Original nattu kozhi takes more time to cook and good for cold and cough. I always make country chicken soup for kids when they are coughing and sneezing. Sending this to FoodieMondayBloghop theme #291CurriesFromtheSouth suggested by me. I suggested posting any curry recipe from four South Indian states. My humble contribution to the theme is this simple village-style country chicken curry.
