How to make Chilly Chicken

  1. Marinate chicken with chilli sauce, soya sauce & pepper powder, at least for 45 minutes. 2 hours is best.
  2. Sprinkle corn flour, plain flour, red chilli powder on the chicken along with salt and mix well. Prepare the sauce- Combine soya sauce, chili sauce, red chili powder, vinegar and ½ tsp sugar to a bowl and mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and deep or fry till the chicken is golden and crisp. Keep stirring to fry evenly. Do not over fry, it tends to turn hard.
  4. When it is cooked, drain on a kitchen tissue.
  5. Remove off excess oil from the pan, just keep 2 spoons oil in the pan. Add garlic and ginger(if using) fry for about a min, add onions, capsicum, spring onions and green chilies and fry till they turn slightly soft for about a minute.
  6. Pour the sauce that was prepared at step 3. Let the sauces bubble up well. If you want more gravy, then add some chicken/veg stock mixed with a tsp of Cornflour.
  7. Add the fried chicken and some salt, Mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning.

My Tip:

Vegetarians can substitute Chicken with paneer.
