Kentucky Fried Chicken

This recipe is from Kairali TV fame
Mrs.Lakshmi Nair's Magic Oven. Though this chicken fry doesn't have the exact taste of real KFC, it is a hit among kids.

Chicken – 1 kg (Leg OR Breast pieces)
Ginger paste- 1 tbsp
Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp
Soya sauce – 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce – 1 tbsp
Tomato sauce – 1 tbsp
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Salt – 1 – 1 ½ tsp
Water – 1 ½ cup

For the Batter :
Maida – 1 ½ cup
Egg – 1 no
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Water – 2 cup
Pepper powder – ½ tsp

For Coating:
Bread crumbs

For corn starch:
Corn flour – 2 tbsp
water - 1/4 cup

Oil for deep frying

How to prepare
Heat a kadai and add the chicken pieces, tomato sauce,soya sauce, chilly sauce, garlic & ginger pastes,pepper powder and salt.
Mix well.
Add water, cover and cook for approx. 10 minutes (till the chicken is 3/4 th cooked).
Put off the stove and remove chicken pieces and keep aside the stock.
In another bowl make a batter of maida, salt, pepper powder, haldi(turmeric), beaten egg and water .
Mix with hand for a loose batter.
Take breadcrumbs in another plate.
Dip the chicken pieces in the batter and then roll it on breadcrumbs till well coated.
Deep fry the chicken pieces till crisp and golden brown.

In another pan heat the stock again, when boiling reduce flame and add the corn starch (add ¼ cup water to 2tbsp of corn flour).
Stir well.

Use this stock as the gravy and serve it in a bowl separately.
The stock is very tasty so instead of discarding the same can be used as a gravy or soup and can be served along with the fried chicken and may be toasted bread.

  8. salam,
    the KFC looks great, will definitely try out, basically this method I used without the breadcrumbs as a preparation for varval(from tamil),where if u did not find time to marinate chicken,you can cook with masala till half done then, deep fry it...nice blog
