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.

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 corn starch:

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.
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.
THE KFC IS READY.
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).
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.
