Chicken 65

This is my favourite dish, i often prepare this as a side dish, it is very easy to prepare & gives restaurant taste... I got this wonderful recipe from "", thanks to Mr. Vah Chef for sharing this recipe & video of preparation..!!

1/2 tsp - Aji no moto(MSG)
2 lbs - Chicken-dark meat(boneless thigh meat)
1/2 - Bunch Coriander leaves-chopped
2 tsp - Cornflour
1/2 tsp each tsp Cumin seeds, Pepper powder,chilli powder,salt
4-5 number Curry Leaves-chopped
1 - number Egg
1 tsp - Garlic-chopped
1/2 tsp - Ginger-chopped
Red Chili Sauce - as reqd
2 tsp - Ginger/Garlic paste
4-5 number Green Chilli
Oil to fry
2-3 drops Red color(Optional)
Spring Onions to garnish


To make the fried chicken pieces:-
1. Take chicken pieces in a non reactive bowl-(We use dark meat so that it is nice and juicy when fried.Add salt, Aji-no-moto,1 tsp ginger/garlic paste, pepper powder-pinch, cornflour and mix-Then add 1 egg and mix in completely-(Egg coats the meat and keeps the juices in)
2. Heat oil in a frying kadhai-Add chicken pieces few at a time(Do not crowd the kadhai) and fry until lightly golden brown-Drain and remove on a paper towel.

To make the sauce:-
This does not need to be very salty-so control salt Heat 2-3 tsp oil in a pan-Add cumin, add the chopped ginger and garlic and saute until fragrant-Add chopped chillies, curry leaves,1 tsp ginger/garlic paste, remaining pepper powder, chilli powder, salt,chilli/garlic paste,Red Chili Sauce, aji-no-moto, red color and mix-Cook for a few minutes. Add a little water and then add chicken to this paste and toss lightly-Stir in the coriander leaves.

Garnish with Spring Onions and serve hot!
