How to make Kethel's Chicken

  1. 1. Take a thick bottomed Kadai, dry roast the chilli flakes for 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Once it's completely cooled, add garlic cloves, fennel seeds, turmeric powder, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and Kashmiri chilli powder into a mixie. pulse it for 20 secs.
  3. 3. Take a ziplock bag, add chicken and the masala. Nicely mix well for 5 minutes.
  4. 4. keep it in a refrigerator for minimum 4 hours.
  5. 5. Deep fry the chicken until it turns a brown colour.

My Tip:

it is important to keep the marinade min for 2-4 hours. so the masala goes in and you get the flavour. I used coconut oil. Since its a Kerala dish, you too can try with coconut oil. any oil is fine if you don't prefer coconut oil. you can even roast red chillies and grind it. if you are finding hard to get chilli flakes.
