Chicken fry in egg wash

Before going further I'd like to say this recipe is by my hubs. While I am safe cook, hubs is a adventure cook. He is the one who creates new stuff in the kitchen. I learn from him and then get all the credit for all the yummy food. :D

So straight to the recipe. The inspiration for it is from our usual Japanese food stall in US. Whenever we go to the mall (which is pretty often. Got my hubs hooked onto window shopping) we definitely go there. So, whats the name of the restaurant . . . Oops! I don't remember. *shame faced*

I have given an approximate and as per my taste. And I like it HOT, SPICY and SALTY. So reduce it if you like it less spicy.

Boness Chicken    - 250 grams (cut to small pieces)
Egg                       - 1 nos
Salt                       - to taste
Turmeric               - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder         - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 3 tsp
Dash of Vinegar
Oil to fry

Ginger garlic paste. You can add or not. I do it both ways depending on my mood.

Steps: Pictorial

  1. Wash chicken thoroughly before starting the marinating process. I wash it with turmeric tinged water. Add  one whole egg. You can beat and add or just add it. Your wish. Mix the egg thoroughly with the chicken so that all the chicken pieces are coated with egg.

  2. Add a dash of vinegar. I have made this with balsamic vinegar. I also have used vinegar and chilli vinegar too when I didn't get balsamic vinegar. But I like it best with balsamic vinegar. You can use other options if you dont get balsamic vinegar. Mix it well with the chicken.

  3. Add salt to your tastes.

  4. Add 1/4 tea spoon turmeric powder.
  5. Add 1 1/2 tea spoons of chilli.

  6. Add 3 tea spoons of coriander powder. My formula normally for Chill powder vs coriander powder is 1:2. It always works.

  7. Mix everything thoroughly, cover it and set it in the fridge for 30 min to an hour and let it marinate.

  8. Heat a kadai and add oil. Once the oil is hot; add the chicken and reduce the flame. I prefer to cook it in the lowest flame and keeping it covered. It takes time but the chicken comes out juicy and not dry.

Thats it!!Yummy chicken fry ready. This is the favorite chicken fry recipe back at home. Mom always asks me to make it. 

So tell me . . . What's your go-to chicken fry recipe.
