Nattu Kozhi Kulambu / Country Chicken Gravy

This ia an authentic South Indian Gramathu/village gravy.  The recipes prepared with Country chicken are excellent in taste.  Whether it is kulambu/gravy or varuval/fry it tastes heavenly.  This was our sunday lunch and it was a big hit.  This Gravy is prapared with sesame oil and it gives a wonderful flavour to this dish.  In my place I can't find it so I am using  British Country chicken / Cornish hen.  But the taste of the  real country style chicken is extraordinary.Now to the recipe...

Sesame Oil / Nallennai - 4 tsp
