Chicken Pakodi

One of our good friends & neighbours have decided to go back to India for good. We had invited them over to our place for dinner last night. Although they are vegetarians the hubby eats Chicken & he loves it. I decided to make some chicken dish & also some vegetarian stuff in the menu. I made Veg Spring rolls & Chicken Pakodi for starters. Roti, Chenna Veg Kurma, Chicken Biriyani & Raitha for Main course. Well how can i forget to mention the main limelight! The dessert was "No Bake Blueberry cheesecake". They really enjoyed the dinner at my place.

Well I named the this dish Tempered Chicken Pakodi coz I deep fried the chicken like pakodis & than used some spices to temper it. Its a new experiment & it turned out so good. Its a very easy recipe & finger licking good. This is how I made it.

Making time: 40 mins
cooking time: 30 mins
serves: 4

  • Boneless Chicken (400gms) Cut into think strips
  • 3 Tbsp Plain Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Flour
  • 1 Tspn course pepper powder
  • 1/2 Tspn Coriander powder
  • 1/4 Tspn Turmeric powder
  • 1 Tspn Souf (Bada Jeera)
  • 1 Tbso Garlic pieces (small)
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger Pieces (small)
  • Handful of curry leaves
  • 4 Green Chili's
  • 1 Tspn Lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Oil for tempering
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Salt as per taste

Make a batter out of plain flour, corn flour, salt & pepper. Dip the chicken pieces in the batter & deep fry for 2 to 3 mins in the hot oil. Once fried remove & set aside. In a Wok/ Pan add in 2 tbsp of oil fry ginger garlic, sauf , Green chili's on low flame. Now add in all the masalas mentioned above, curry leaves, soya sauce & than add in the fried chicken into this. Give it a good mix & add in salt if required. That all & the chicken is ready. Isn't that so simple??
