This curry hails from Ankapur village in the state of Telangana in south-central India where the local restaurants have become famous for it. The chicken is first marinated, then charred over an open flame, cooked in a spicy sauce rich with dried chillies and finally served with sliced raw onion for its unique taste. An array of typical South Indian sides complete the meal, including a tamarind mango dish, a cooling cucumber pachadi and some incredibly moreish crunchy sweetcorn pakora.
