Quail/Kada Fry

Today's recipe is a Kerala  delicacy, spicy deep fried Quail/Kada.It had been years since we had any and so when we found this in our local Mediterranean store, I was super excited.Crispy kada fry was the first thing that came to my mind.

This is an easy to cook recipe with wonderful flavor of aromatic spices,  curry leaves and coconut oil.Try this recipe,you will surely love it
