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. It's served here with a cooling cucumber raita and plain rice on the side.
