When it comes to Chicken, many of us like to try new versions. I love that way too. I already have a huge list of chicken recipes in this website. But I have a personal choice if it is s made in Kerala style with coconut oil. This Ginger Garlic Chicken - Kerala Style is super spicy crispy chicken cooked with thick masala and coated with coconut oil.
I regularly watch a super special cookery show on Asianet Channel. It shows food cooked in toddy shops. The recipes are all unique and real yum. I am sure any viewer of that programme would be drooling by the end of the show. In many of the yummy dishes made, most of them use strips of ginger garlic fried in coconut oil for be it a fish curry or a stir fry or for any meat recipe. That inspired me to make the Ginger garlic chicken.
The tricky and tastier part of the recipe is the roasting of onion, ginger and garlic strips well in oil. That does contribute to the yummy treat of the Ginger garlic chicken. If you would ask me for the best combo for this Ginger garlic chicken it is a chicken coconut pulao. My dad and my husband loved this Ginger garlic chicken to the core. The Ginger garlic chicken would be a little spicy for kids. Be sure to use coconut oil for the heavenly blend of spices coated chicken with crunchy ginger garlic strips.
