Chicken fry, Kerala style (Serves 2)

Chicken fry, Kerala style

Thank you my dear friends for your wishes and blessings on this blog’s birthday.

Today’s recipe, is a very simple, delicious CHICKEN FRY, the recipe of which came from my friend ANANDHU, who lives in Pune. He is a wonderful follower of my blog. This recipe, according to him, is a product of his bachelorship, “chickenophilia” and distance from home. I saw him online last week and during our chat, he mentioned that he was preparing chicken fry and shared that recipe with me. We enjoyed it with some rotis and  I am sure it tastes great with rice and even kerala parotta too…Thank you Anandhu and hope this new skill of yours adds to your resume of a promising “Nalan”…

Chicken drum sticks 2 pieces
Red chilly powder 1 TBSP
Coriander powder ½ TBSP
Chicken masala powder 1 tsp, I used eastern brand
Turmeric powder ¼ tsp
Garam masala ¼ tsp
Salt as needed
Lime juice 1 tsp
Water 1-2 TBSP
Oil 2-3 TBSP or for shallow frying

Nadan kozhi varuthathu

Other ingredients :

Curry leaves 2 sprigs
Ginger a small piece
Garlic 1 clove
Sliced onions ½ cup, optional

Preparation

Wash and clean the chicken drum sticks well, Pat dry using a paper towel. Do not remove the skin from the chicken, pull it down and make two slits each on both the sides. Set aside.

Chicken fry

In a bowl, prepare a rub (marinade) with red chilly powder, coriander powder, chicken masala powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, salt, lime juice and water. Apply it onto the chicken pieces thoroughly. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate the chicken for a minimum of 2 hours.

Heat oil in a frying pan, add two sprigs of curry leaves, a piece of ginger and a clove of garlic. This makes the oil more flavorful. Now shallow fry the chicken at medium heat until you get a brown color on all the sides. Make sure you keep the heat at medium, so that the inside of chicken gets cooked well too. Take it off of the pan and allow to slightly cool before digging in..

Kerala style, chicken fry

Notes: If you prefer, you can sauté sliced onions in the same oil and mix with the chicken..
You can also add, tomato paste along with the marinade, which will ensure a tangy taste to the fry..

Cheers!!!
