Fried Chicken

fried chicken
about 8 to 10 chicken pieces 
1/4 tsp turmeric powder 
1/2 tbsp chillie powder to preference 
3/4 tsp salt 
1/2 cup water 
oil to fry* 

Mix the salt, turmeric and chillie powder with the chicken pieces then parboil the chicken with the water in medium heat until the liquid evaporates.  Remove the chicken from the cooker and leave it aside. 


Heat oil to high heat and fry the chicken until it is golden brown in all sides, reduce the heat if the chicken is becoming brown fast.  
*I discard the oil after frying chicken so I used about 3" of oil and fried.

  1. Looks great! Are you using the American Chilli Powder or lal mirchi? Also did you deep fry the chicken?

    1. I used red spicy chillie powder, if you a mild one add more :) to preference.
      To fry I used 2 to 3" of oil and fried as I usually discard the fried oil

  13. I love that you have kept the spices to a minimum. I tend to go overboard with a whole lot of things when frying chicken. Love this version :)
