Now u can prepare restaurant style chilli chicken at ur home with in few minutes :) Here comes the recipe… :)
Big onion-1 (minced)
Big Onion-1 (cubed)
Garlic-1 1/2 tbsp
Capsicum-1/4 of 1 medium(cubed)
Spring Onion-3 tbsp
Sesame oil-1 tsp
Pepper Powder-1/4 tsp
Tomato ketchup-1 1/2tbsp
All purpose flour -1 tbsp
Wash the chicken thoroughly using salt and vinegar..
Here i used fresh chicken breast piece.
Soak these chicken in curd and salt water (add salt and curd in 4to5 cup of water and mix well ) for 1 to 2 hours ..
This process will soften ur chicken .. believe me after frying it will juicy in side ..
Then wash the chicken again ..
Cut them in to small cubes (cut each piece in a slanting direction )
Again wash them and drain them for 10 minutes
Then take a bowl and add all purpose flour,corn flour,soya sauce,vinegar ,pepper powder ,salt and egg ..
Mix well ..Add very little amount of water ..
Marinate the chicken pieces with this paste and keep aside for at least 30 minutes .i didn’t add colour ,if u want u can add..
Then shallow fry the chicken pieces for about 5 minutes in each side in medium flame ..
Drain the fried chicken pieces in kitchen tissue and keep aside..
Now heat 1 tbsp of oil ,use the same oil we used for frying chicken..
To this add minced ginger and garlic..Saute for seconds in high flame ..Be very careful while sauting them ..There is a chancing of getting burn..So stir continuously ..
To this add minced big onion ,celery,minced green chilli and 2 tbsp of spring onion ..
Saute until they become light golden in colour ..
Reduce the heat ..
Then to this add soy sauce ,tomato ketchup ,salt,vinegar and sugar ..
Mix well ..If u want ur chicken to be saucy then add some hot water and boil well..
Check the sauce ..Adjust the sauce according to ur taste buds,..
Then add fried chicken and cubed onion and capsicum ..
Mix well and cook until the chicken is well coated with sauce ..
Finally sprinkle pepper powder,sesame oil and spring onion …
If u want the chicken to be very dry,then no need to add water ..
In restaurants they some times use colour and ajinomoto ..Here i avoided both …
Hope u all will try and give me ur feedbacks..
Note: U can increase or decrease the amount of chilli ,soya sauce or vinegar according to ur taste.
