Step by step instructions
Let us see the step by step instructions for making the quick chicken fry
Marinate the chicken
Wash and clean the chicken for 3 to 4 times with salt. Take them in a big bowl.
Add salt, chilli powder
Turmeric, coriander and cumin powder
Pepper powder, garam masala, garlic paste
Also add the ginger paste, corn flour and gram flour
Now add in some one or two pinches of red food colour. This step is optional but it gives a nice reddish colour to the chicken pieces. Now squeeze a small lemon fully for a tangy taste. This can be adjusted as per your taste.
Mix everything well. Add little water to mix thoroughly.
Just marinate for about 10 to 15 minutes only. If the chicken pieces are big, using a fork slowly prick the chicken pieces, so that masala goes inside. If your chicken are small pieces, then no need to prick them.
Frying the chicken
In a pan, add enough oil and heat in medium flame. Drop a small piece of chicken to check if the oil is hot enough to fry. One the oil is hit, add the chicken pieces one by one.
Fry the chicken in small batches. ( i fried of about 5 to 6 pieces of chicken as my frying pan is small. ) you can add more pieces but the chicken pieces should have more space so that it cam be rotated easily )
Frying the chicken takes about 10 minutes at least. Fry them in medium flame only. Keep rotating while frying. Chicken pieces turn dark reddish in colour and the sshhhh…. sound ceases.
The chicken would.have turned crispy by this time. Remove from oil and filter the excess oil.
Repeat the process of frying with the remaining chicken pieces also. Fry some curry leaves in the same oil and add to the chicken.
Your tasty and easy chicken fry is ready to be served.
