Quick and Easy to Follow Recipe

  1. Pick out the pieces of chicken you want to fry. Skinned or skinless legs and thigh or wings are good options. Some people like fried chicken with skin because it gives it some extra crispiness. However I am using skinless chicken pieces in this recipe.
  2. Place pieces of chicken in a large mixing bowl and all ingredients including ginger and garlic paste ,all spice powder lemon juice or vinegar (only one of these two) just a few drops ,salt and chill powder and mix well using your hands.
  3. Make sure all pieces are well coated. Now cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or lid and place it in refrigerator for one to two hours ideally 2 hours at least.
  4. In the mean time take a smaller bowl and put gram flour in it with a little water and whisk it to make a batter that is neither too thick nor too runny. It should be like a thin paste more like the consistency of soup. See the image attached.
  5. After two hours the chicken is ready to fry.It can go longer in the fridge without spoiling. I have kept it in the fridge for more than 24 hours sometimes without any damage to the taste and freshness.
  6. Marination time can be as short as less than an hour depending on the schedule. Trust me it will be almost as tasty as the longer marinated one.
  7. Heat oil in a deep pan preferably a wok when the oil is hot which should be tested by dropping a drop of batter in wok if it floats up making bubbles the oil is good enough to fry the chicken. Turn the flame to medium and coat the pieces of chicken in batter and drop them slowly in the wok to fry. it should take about 10-15 minutes to be fully done on both sides. Keep the flame medium for first 5 minutes and relatively low for ten minutes.
  8. Take out the chicken with a slotted spoon in a dish with a piece of towel paper spread on it.
  9. Best if eaten freshly fried but it can be reheated in toaster oven or even microwave. Delicious chicken is ready to devour. Enjoy the crispiness of gramflour with all the wholeness of the grain in it.
  10. Serve with hot sauce,chutney or ketchup; its delicious anyway.
