Chicken 65

Chicken 65 is deep fried chicken dish. The spice level can be adjusted according to ones taste buds. I have two kids, so I make it medium spicy.
Its a super simple dish to make,  and an all time favorite for everyone(at least in my family).

Here is a step by step procedure:


Boneless chicken cubes - 300 gms
Egg - 1
Lime - 1/2
Turmeric - 1/4tsp
Chili powder - 1/2tsp
Coriander powder - 1/4tsp
Garam masala - 1/4tsp
Ginger-Garlic paste - 3/4tsp
Cornflour - 2TBSp
Salt to taste
oil for deep frying

For seasoning(optinal)

Slit green chili - 2
Curry leaves
Crushed garlic -2
Fresh coriander leaves


Take a medium sized bowl, whisk egg, cornflour, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, ginger-garlic paste, salt and squeeze the lime juice in and whisk the mix well.
This is your marinade, add the chicken and mix well. Cover the bowl with a plastic film.  Put in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.

Take out the marinade, at least 15 minutes before you want to serve the dish.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Deep fry the marinated chicken for about 5-10 minutes(or check if the chicken is cooked). I use chicken tenders, so I deep fry the chicken somewhere in between 5-10 minutes. (If my kids are home, they start munching on the chicken right away before I do the seasoning). You can try both ways, seasoning does add a nice taste to the fried chicken.
 Now prepare the seasoning items. take a shallow pan and add very little oil, about 1-2 tsp, add green chili, curry leaves and the crushed garlic and stir it till the garlic is light brown and the chili looks fried. Add in the chicken and some fresh coriander leaves, and stir it well and turn off the flame. Your dish is ready to be served. Serve it with a dash of lime.

  Serve it as a snack, or as a side dish. Hope you enjoy this simple and delicious dish!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
