                     This is a Kerala version of roasted Piri Piri chicken. Piri piri chicken is mainly a spicy African grilled or roasted chicken served with piri piri/ peri peri sauce. The word Piri Piri here refers to the spice of chili pepper. 
                    Here I am sharing you the recipe of  Kerala style Piri Piri chicken where the Piri Piri stands for the special Piri Piri chili used for the spice and texture of this dish. This is an excellent chicken dish with gravy and the tiny bits of roasted coconut slices makes this dish a heavenly touch.
