1. Cut and wash chicken pieces, drain water completely and take it in a bowl, to it add soy sauce, ginger garlic paste, salt, pepper powder and mix everything well and keep aside for 15 - 20 minutes. Then soak 6 or 7 dry red chillies in 1/4 cup warm water and keep aside. 2. And then prepare batter using corn flour, maida and water and keep ready. After marination, heat oil in a kadai to deep fry chicken pieces. when oil is heated, dip each piece in batter then drop in hot oil and fry till chicken pieces turn crisp. 3. And remove the fried chicken using slotted laddle and drain excess oil in paper towel. 4. Do repeat the same for all the chicken pieces. Now the chicken pieces are ready to make chilli chicken. 5. Now in a blender, add soaked dry red chilli with 1 tbsp water and blend it to a smooth paste. 6. And transfer the chilli paste to a small bowl, to it add soy sauce, tomato sauce, sesame oil and mix everything well and keep ready. 7. And then heat oil and sesame oil in a pan, add chopped garlic, broken red chilli and fry for few seconds. 8.

And now add the fried chicken pieces and saute for 1-2 minutes. 12. Once the chicken get nicely coated with the sauces switch off the stove. 13. And lastly add cilantro and spring onion green. 14. That's it...Spicy & Yummy Chilli Chicken Dry ready. Serve hot as a starter or with Fried Rice. We had it with Egg Fried Rice(recipe coming soon). Notes: The above recipe will give you a spicy Chilli Chicken, for medium hot - reduce chilli to 4-5 or add more tomato ketchup. If you like you can also add 1/2 tsp rice vinegar to the sauce. Marinating chicken for at least 20-30 minutes will give you soft, juicy and spicy chicken. While preparing the corn flour-maida batter, the batter consistency should be medium thin dropping consistency. And if the batter is over with the half chicken, make the same amount and use for the rest of the chicken. I used boneless chicken thighs, you can also use breast chicken or tenderloins.
