Natu Kodi Pulusu/Country Chicken Curry

This is an absolutely easy and spicy chicken curry you can make and I made it on kanuma, the third day of sankranthi...in rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh, which is my in laws place, they serve either this curry or mutton Pulusu/curry with vadas on kanuma..this recipe is from my mother though
