How to make Chicken 65

  1. Wash Chicken pieces well and marinate for an hour with the ingredients mentioned under "To Marinate Chicken"
  2. After an hour combine the egg, rice flour and corn flour to the chicken and mix well.Heat sufficient oil in a vessel to deep fry the chicken.
  3. Drop few pieces at a time and deep fry till they are cooked and turns golden brown. Remove the fried pieces on a paper towel.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, chilli powder and salt and mix well.
  5. In a pan heat oil, and once hot add the cumin seeds followed by green chillis and garlic (and curry leaves if u have). Fry for few seconds and then add the yogurt mixture.
  6. On medium flame cook the yogurt mixture for 2 - 3 minutes till oil separates and then add the fried chicken pieces to it.
  7. Toss the chicken well in the yogurt until the chicken absorbs all the yogurt well and coated nicely. Make sure the yogurt is all dried up.
  8. Garnish with some coriander and Serve hot with lemon and onion.

My Tip:

Choose fresh and boneless chicken for best results. Adjust spices as per taste. Deep fry chicken well in medium flame so that its cooked well from inside. Do not skip the yogurt part as it makes the chicken more moist and juicy and also gives a nice texture with taste. But do not use too much yogurt or runny curd . And make sure you add the fried chicken pieces to the yogurt mixture only after its cooked well and oil separates, else chicken will turn soggy. Egg is mandatory as it locks the chicken juices when frying in oil. Serve as starter with some lemon and onion rings and bring restaurant style food at home :) I haven't used any extra coloring agents and got the color from Kashmiri red chilli powder.
