Oil- for deep frying.


Chilly Chicken

  • Wash and clean Chicken pieces.
  • Squeeze the washed chicken well and place it in a bowl.
  • Add cornflour, ginger garlic paste, salt, chilli powder and a pinch of red food color.
  • Marinate them well.
  • Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • When oil is hot enough, deep fry marinated chicken until crisp (10 minutes)
  • Drain excess oil and pour lemon juice over and give a quick toss.
  • Serve hot with Mushroom Veg Biriyani and Salad.
Points to be noted:

  • Squeeze out excess water off chicken after washing or the marination will not bind good.
  • Let oil get heated up well but do not let it reach smoking point.
  • If you want the chilly chicken to be red, add food color or a teaspoon of beet juice.
