Chicken 65

Print  Friendly and PDF
This is coming straight from MIL's Kitchen and she used some homemade masala powder to make this scrumptious snack. When I do this at home I usually use the "Sakthi" brand's Chicken 65 powder and it comes out a little differently. Other than the slight color difference the taste is pretty much the same.
  • Boneless Chicken - 1 lb, chunked
  • Ginger/Garlic paste - 3 tbsp
  • Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
  • Sakthi Chicken 65 Masala powder - 1/2 pack or Home-made powder
  • Corn Flour - 1/4 cup
  • All-purpose flour - 1/4 cup
  • Egg - 1
  • Salt for taste
  • Vegetable Oil for deep frying
  • Curry Leaves for garnish
  • Wash the chunked chicken and drain it completely of all moisture.
  • Mix all of the above ingredients except the chicken in a bowl.
  • Marinate the chicken chunks in the mixture for 30 minutes.
  • Deep fry in batches on low flame for best results.
  • Serve hot with deep-fried curry leaves as garnish.

    10. @Ushnish -- Will certainly give your recipe a shot. The readymade Chicken 65 masala is a South Indian Brand called " Sakthi". It must be available in all Grocery stores in TamilNadu. Dont know about other states.Sorry
