Cut the chicken into small pieces..

Take out the chicken and wash again and drain ..
In a bowl add ,chopped curryleaves,coriander leaves,curd,lemon juice,cumin powder,garam masala,coriander powder,chilli powder,turmeric powder,corn flour ,ginger -garlic paste,rice flour and salt ..
Add chicken and mix them well.. Keep aside for 15 minutes ..
Heat oil in a kadai and shallow fry the pieces till well cooked .. Drain to a kitchen tissue and keep aside ..
Now heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and add ginger garlic paste ..Saute for a minute
Then add curry leaves ,green chilli and sauté ..
Then lower the heat and add all the powders .. Saute them till the raw smell goes ..
Then add chilli garlic sauce ,lemon juice and food colour .(If u don’t have chilli garlic sauce ,then add chopped garlic along with green chilli and add chilli sauce ..)
Add 3 tbsp of water and allow to boil ..Check the salt ..
Now add the fried chicken and mix well till all the pieces and well coated with the sauce ..
If u want u can fry some curry leaves and green chilli and garnish in the top..
Just try this and tell me how was it ..I bet u r going to like it for sure …
Note : Adjust the spice level accordingly ..I did for my kids so decreased the spice level .. I put colour to get nice pics ,otherwise no need to add colour .. and don’t worry looking at the long list of ingredients ..its all there in our kitchen all the time 😉
If u don’t have time to brine the chicken (over night soaking in salt water ) u can marinate and keep in the fridge for 1 hour ..Brining will make the chicken juicy and tender ..
U can omit last step ,just fry the chicken and have it like that 🙂 .. Some times some people may don’t prefer sauce in chicken 65 .. !!
Yummm! Vaayinn vellam varunn. Will try fr sure. 🙂
Thank u dear 🙂
looking too good…absolutely delicious…u din’t mention ginger-garlic paste for marinating the chicken…
Thank u…yea I forgot to write to ginger- garlic paste.. Thanks for mentioning dear .. Updated 🙂
Hi Veena, This is really really good……Came out really well…..Family loved it ,has a professional hotel feel to it… That good 🙂
An interesting story with this dish……
My sister tried it out first and told me to try out the recipe… Also sent me her version of the snap …. Tempted by this,the very next weekend ,got the ingredients and tried it and my snap looked even better and I sent that to her…Oh that very day she made it again with the all the correct ingredients,color etc and it then …ahem.. looked just about as good as mine 😉 …(she may disagree :)) and we called it quits….
Needless to say husbands had a good laugh and a good meal…..
The chicken in brine is a very good tip….Chicken was so soft and succulent….Yum yum…..
