Chicken Fry Recipe | Fried Chicken Drumsticks | Spicy Drumstick Chicken Fry | Chicken Recipes

This is one of the simple and easy non-veg recipes we can prepare and serve as a starter. If marinated well for at least an hour with the required masala, then this chicken fry will be a sure hit. I always marinate it the day before and leave it overnight in the fridge. We usually start munching it as soon as fried, never allowed it to come to the Dining table :)  Do check out my Dry Chicken masala , Chicken Chippies and Restaurant Style boneless chicken 65 too. Here, we go for the recipe.
Final Pictures Updated on 6th Nov 2016
Chicken -  500 grams 
Chilli Powder - 2 tsp 
Turmeric powder - 3/4 tsp  
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp 
Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp 
Rice flour - 1 tsp
Corn flour - 1 tsp 
Egg - 1
Curd - 1 tsp
Lemon - 1/2 
Red Food Color - a pinch (Optional) 
Salt - as required
1. Clean the chicken pieces. If boneless you can cut it into small bite sized pieces and if it is with bone, give a slit in the fleshy portion for the masala to enter inside. We prefer chicken with bones, so I have it as big sized pieces. Mix all the ingredients except the chicken pieces and form a smooth paste. You can add a little water if needed. 
2. Marinate the chicken pieces in the prepared masala and allow it to rest for at least 1 hour, you can leave it even longer. Then deep fry the marinated chicken with enough oil. Deep fry on medium flame and turn it with a fork in between allowing all the sides to cook evenly. Remove from flame when it turns golden brown and crispy. Don't fry till it turns harder, just remove when it is soft. Drain it in tissue paper.
The fried chicken is ready to be served as a starter and it goes well with Fried rice and as a side dish for any rice of your choice. 
Points to remember:
  • You can also do the marination the previous day and leave it overnight in the fridge.
  • Deep fry on medium flame, else the outer portion darkens faster leaving the inside portion uncooked.
  • I don't add food color when I make chicken fry.  This time to get bright restaurant color fried chicken I used it. You can skip it. 
Warm Regards,
