Indian Style Chilli Chicken Fry

Ok so i have been away.. for a long time.

I’ve been incredibly busy.. too much to mention

But I’m back and sharing a recipe I just perfected after soo many attempts.

Funnily enough this is quite a simple recipe.. and that is why I never got it right the first few times I tried to replicate it. I have a tendency to ” overthink” everything and anything I do.. so i am working on that!!

Anyway, enjoy the recipe and dont forget to subscribe and comment!!

You will need:

1.1 kg chicken maryland pieces chopped (thats how much the butcher gave me today :p )

0.5- 0.75 tablespoon salt (to taste)

1- 1.5 Tablespoon KASHMIRI chilli powder (this is a variety that is vibrant red and less hot.. use the regular stuff and you will suffer!)

1 Tablespoon  each cumin powder, corriander powder and garam masala powder.

1-2 Tablespoons of oil.

one clove garlic- minced

same amount of ginger as garlic- minced

(you can use less of the spices above for milder flavour)


To make:

Mix everything together and allow to marinate for at least an hour. Cut some slits into the chicken to help the flavour penetrate.

Heat you oven to max setting and allow to heat up. Place chicken on lined baking trays, making sure not to overcrowd you tray.

Bake on very high heat until crispy on the outside and cooked through. If you find it starts to burn, lower the heat.

You can also deep fry (which is traditional, but I dont like to)


Garnish with fresh corrainder and onion slices.
