Thattukada Style Chicken Fry or Kozhi fry is a very popular street food fare in Kerala. Chicken pieces are marinated in a spicy mix in advance and deep fried with curry leaves and green chilli. Thattukada are small shops, mainly covered push cart or vans that serve fast food/ street food. Thattukada usually serves tea, coffee, Thattu dosas, Ethakka Appam, Samosas, Uzhunnu Vada, Parippu Vada etc and the most coveted items like Masala Omlette, Parotta and Beef curry, Parotta and chicken fry, Chicken 65 etc.

You can find it in all the main streets of Kerala, near Bus stops or major junctions where you can always see a crowd gathering to relish the delicacies. It is usually open from evening till midnight or till the food gets over; the aroma is the main attraction of these food joints.During my childhood, I was often attracted by these shops; the aroma was so irresistible but my mother never allowed as she was always apprehensive about the hygienic factor of these shops. In those times, ladies never ate near these shops, it was mostly a male dominated area. Instead, we would relish the Parotta and Chicken fry parcels bought from these shops.
