Oil for frying



  • Marinating: cut the chicken breasts into long thin strips. Add the butter milk and salt as required to chicken strips and marinate it for 2 hours. This brings nice juicy flavour to the chicken and makes it tender.


  • After 2 hours, squeeze the chicken slices and transfer it to another bowl. Add 1 egg, all purpose flour, corn flour and rice flour, salt and ginger garlic paste. Mix well. Marinate for another hour and store in refrigerator.


  • Now, deep fry the marinated chicken strips until they turn golden brown and keep it aside. (do not over fry them, they will lose the flavour)


  • Take a big pan, add oil. Add chopped garlic and ginger, curry leaves, green chilli and sauté for 5 mins.


  • Add the curd, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, black pepper powder, and mint leaves.


  • Now add the soy sauce, chilli sauce, spicy tomato sauce, lemon juice. Add fried chicken as well.


  • Mix well, coat the chicken to the gravy.


  • Cover and let it cook for 3-5 mins.


  • Take it out and serve. Garnish with coriander leaves.
