Kerala Chicken Fry

My family loves chicken fry. If it is fried chicken, it will vanish within no time! This authentic Kerala recipe has very less ingredients and is easy to prepare. You can smear the masala on the chicken pieces and even refrigerate them. Take out and fry them as and when you need it.

What you need:
Chicken pieces -1 kg
Coriander powder -1.5 tbsp
Chilly powder -1 tbsp
Turmeric powder -1\2 tsp
Ginger paste -2 tsp
Garlic paste -2 tsp
Curd -1.5 tbsp
Lime juice -2 tsp
Salt -to taste
Oil -for frying
Wash and squeeze the chicken pieces to make them dry. In a vessel, mix together the spice powders, ginger paste, garlic paste, curd, lime juice and salt. Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Keep it aside for an hour. Fry them in oil till golden brown. Serve them with pulao, rice or rotis.
