  • ½ kg Chicken
  • 2 springs Curry Leaves – 2 springs
  • Oil for deep frying

To Marinate:

  • ¼ cup Curd
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder
  • ½ tsp Coriander Powder
  • ½ tsp Garam Masala
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • ½ tsp Pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp Ginger garlic paste
  • Salt as needed
  • 2 tbsp Rice Flour or Corn Flour


  • In a large bowl add in the cleaned chicken pieces. Preferably chicken pieces with bones. If it's a leg piece, draw in some slits.
  • Add in all the spice powders. I am using Chilli powder, Coriander powder, turmeric powder, Garam Masala, Pepper powder, Salt, and ginger garlic paste.
  • Next to the chicken add in Rice flour or Cornflour. It gives a crisp texture to the fry so don’t skip it.
  • And then add in curd or Yogurt.
  • Combine everything well and allow it to marinate for 2 hours or overnight. Next in a frying pan add in oil for deep frying.
  • Drop in the marinated chicken in the hot oil and deep fry till it gets tender and cooked.
  • Just before switching off the flame add in a handful of fresh curry leaves and after a min switch off the flame. Drain the chicken pieces in a paper towel to remove excess oil.



  • If you are a fan of coconut oil try frying the chicken in coconut oil it tastes heavenly.
  • Squeeze out lemon juice just before serving the chicken
  • Don’t skip adding curry leaves to the fry it gives a nice aroma.
  • Tastes best when served hot.
