These “Andhra Chicken Tacos” are a total crowd pleaser and a perfect amalgamation of the two of my favourite cuisines!

My Andhra chicken recipe, or should I say my friend Swati’s mum’s recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my website. So much so that many of my followers and fellow bloggers have tried it and loved it. This recipe always has been a party pleaser and total hit in all my parties.

Since 2012 I have been making this chicken, but for a recent party I wanted to raise the ante, so I decided to make these delicious Andhra Chicken Tacos.

In my opinion, no tacos are complete without a good sauce, and I wanted to make something refreshing and soothing to go with the chicken as it is a bit spicy. So I decided to make this lip-smacking Yoghurt, curry leaves dressing and trust me it goes so well with it.

Make these Andhra Chicken Tacos in your next party and impress your friends!
This is how you make this recipe.
