Simple and quick chicken fry which goes well as an appetizer or as dry item on the party menu.
Give it a try and I bet half the dish will be gone even before it is served!!

2 tsp Red chili powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
3 tsp Fennel seeds
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
2 tsp lemon juice
1 egg
salt per taste
For deep Frying
2 tbsp All purpose flour(Maida)
oil for frying
For Garnish
1/2 big onion sliced length wise
10 green chilies slit length wise
handful of curry leaves
Handful of cilantro leaves
Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and clean them. In a small bowl beat the egg well and set aside. In a big bowl take chicken pieces and add in all the marinade ingredients except for the egg. mix real well. Now add in the beaten egg and mix well. Set aside for an hour.
After an hour sprinkle the all purpose flour on top of the marinated chicken and mix well. Line a plate with paper towels and set aside. Heat oil in a deep pan on medium heat. Drop in a small piece of chicken in the oil to see if the oil is hot enough. Once the oil is hot enough, add in the chicken pieces one by one. Let the chicken fry for 10 to 12 minutes on medium heat. Do not over crowd the pan. Fry in batches.
Transfer the fried pieces to the plate lined with paper towels.
Once all the chicken pieces are fried, take the oil pan off the heat. Add a tbsp of oil to another pan and place it on the stove. Heat the oil and add in the curry leaves. Let them splutter. Now add in the green chilies and let them splutter as well. Add in the onions and just fry for 30 seconds. Sprinkle a pinch of salt. Turn off the heat and add in the coriander leaves. Give it a good stir and now add in the fried chicken pieces. Give it a good toss and transfer to a serving platter.
This dish serves as a great appetizer for parties. Enjoy!!
