INGREDIENTS


Chicken---------------1 lbs,cut in to pieces,preferably boneless
Oil---------------------as needed


For marination
All purpose flour---------1 tbsp

METHOD

  1. Mix marinating ingredients(egg,all purpose flour,corn flour,salt and lime juice/vinegar) in a bowl and marinate chicken for minimum 15 minutes.
  2. Now in a medium heat pan add 2tbsp of oil and fry chicken pieces.(You can also deep fry chicken if you prefer). Fry chicken till it is cooked perfectly.Do not fry too much as  chicken will become hard and rubbery if over fried but will be soft and juicy if fried perfectly.
  3. Keep the fried chicken aside and drain off excess oil using tissue paper.
  4. Now in the same pan add onion and green chilly.Saute till soft.
  5. Then add ginger garlic paste and saute in low flame till the raw smell goes.
  6. Then add soy sauce,hot sauce,tomato ketchup,sugar and chicken stock.Bring this to a boil.
  7. Add fried chicken pieces to it and slow cook it covered till all the sauce is fully incorporated with the chicken.Check the seasoning.
  8. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped spring onions.
