Chicken Fry

The laziness in me hit new low today. So I made Pepper Rasam and Chicken Fry. My husband absolutely loves the chicken fry which is made this way! This is simple and it tastes great. If you are on time crunch like me, try this method. You will not be disappointed.

Chicken: 1 lb (just over 1/2 kg)
Red Chili Powder: 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: According to taste
Ginger Garlic paste: 1 tbsp
Yogurt/curd: 2 tbsp
Pepper Powder: 1/4 tsp
Oil for shallow frying, about 3 tbsp

Wash the bite sized chicken pieces and marinate everything together (with the exception of oil) for 1-2 hours. IF in summer, leave the marinade in fridge.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry until chicken gets cooked. Do not add any water. After chicken is cooked, the color would start to turn. This is when chicken fry is ready to be served!

  5. Very easy and yummy . I too cook the same way attimes.But hesitate coz they say curd isnt good with Non veg Items.


  6. Thanks ladies!

    LR, I usually make small quantities so that we finish on the same day. So so far we havent had any issues with using curd.
