Chicken Red Stones
(Crispy,flavorful, juicy and succulent fried chicken)
I am a great fan of the red fried chicken which is available at restaurants. It is so crispy and juicy that, the red fried was a regular on our order menu to whichever hotels we go, and whatever the main course be. Be it the Mutton / Chicken Palakkad Dum Biriyani or the Porotta and Green Peas curry, red fried chicken usually called as the chilly chicken will be available on our table.
Leave alone the restaurants, chilly chicken is fantastically made by my mom at home. She had a lot of fans for her cooking skills and everyone who visited our place has been lucky enough to taste the magic of my mom’s hands. This recipe is her own recipe and it is such a perfect one that we have wonderfully enjoyed it when we were kids and we still continue to enjoy this yummy chicken fry even now. Now , my husband is a great fan of mom’s fried chicken followed by my kids. The idea of sharing this easy yet tasty recipe has been in my minds since quite some time and it was yesterday , that I was able to make this and I also got a chance to photoshoot it at day light as we usually make this for dinner.
Coming to the name of the recipe, this recipe tastes better when it is made with boneless chicken and making small pieces of it would look like small red colored stones/ pebbles. Just like the name of Chicken Leg-aan goes, this too was named by my dear dad.
And here goes the mom’s magic recipe,
- Chicken – 500 g (Preferably boneless)
- Salt – As needed
- Chilly powder – 1 tbspn
- Red food color – 1/8 to 1/4 tsp (As needed)
- Egg – 1 small
- Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp
- Lemon – 1 squeezed
- Cornflour – 1 tbspn.
- Chilly sauce – 1 tbspn *
- Oil – To fry
If you do not have green chilly sauce, just squeeze the juice of 2 lemons instead of 1.
- Make a thick marinade of chilly powder, salt, ginger garlic paste, red food color, cornflour, lemon and egg.
- Marinate chicken in the marinade for a minimum of 1 hour. For best results, marinate overnight.
- Deep fry in hot oil in medium – high flame.
All I can say is Diggggggggg In….. I am sure you cannot stop yourself eating….
Love and Regards,
