Directions || How to preparation chicken 65
In a large bowl ,mix boneless chicken with ginger garlic paste,pepper powder,eggs,corn flour and salt.
Refrigerate this mixture for about 3-4 hours to let the marinade work its magic on the chicken pieces. You can also leave it overnight in the refrigerator.
Heat the oil in a kadai or pan.
Gently add the marinated chicken pieces one by one without overlapping and fry on a medium-low flame until golden brown, turning every once in a while.
Make sure you don’t over-fry the chicken , the chicken should be tender and outside should turn a dark golden brown otherwise the chicken won’t be cooked through.
Remove it out from the oil and drain on paper towels and keep it aside.
For tempering , heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter.
Next add garlic,ginger,chilli-garlic paste(I used home made chilli paste for this recipe),red chilli powder and some salt.
Mix all the ingredients well with the chicken, then add curd and mix it well
The curd will leave some water,once the chicken is well cooked in the curd well in the chicken,add few curry leaves,sugar and lemon juice and saute it for 2-3 mins.
Add little food color,now this is optional if you want a restaurant look.
Turn off the gas and remove the chicken on the serving plate,garnish it with green chillies and coriander.
Serve hot with lemon wedges and raw sliced onions.
