Kerala chicken recipe


chicken breast cut into cubes - l inch cubes
3 tbspyoghurt
3 tbsp cornflour
4 tbsp ordinary flour
paste of l/2 inch ginger and l pip garlic
egg white from one egg
salt and pepper to taste
a little pinch of sugar
ordinary oil to deepfry the marinated chicken
3 tablesp. coconut oil (this is compulsory because the flavor of this dish comes from the coconut oil)
curry leaves - 20 pcs
bombay onions cut into rings - not too thin nor too thick
dried chilies

Marinate the chicken cubes with yoghurt, garlic and ginger paste,cornflour, ordinary flour, egg white, salt, pepper and a little pinch of sugar for at least half an hour.
In very hot oil fry the marinated chicken till golden brown.
The chicken should be brown but the inside should be soft and juicy - thats why the oil must be hot.
Dish out the chicken and put aside.
In coconut oil, sautee the onion rings and add the curry leaves and dried chilies.
Throw in the chicken and fry them till they are well mixed.
Add more pepper and salt if needed.

Served hot.
