Chicken Fry



10 Chicken DrumSticks, Skin peeled
1 1/2 tsp ginger
3/4 Tsp Garlic
2 tblsp Chilly Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Pepper powder
2 tsp fresh lemon Juice
1 sprig curry leaves
Oil for frying


1 large onion thinly sliced
4 chillies slit


1. Clean the drumsticks and pat dry with paper towel. Make a marinade ( from the marinade ingriedients) and apply it on the chicken pieces. Let it stay over night, otherwise minimum of 2 hrs is a must for good taste.

2. Add oil in pan amd fry the curry leaves. keep it aside. Fry the chicken until it is brown and well done on both sides. Keep aside.

3. In the same oil, saute the onions until they turn golden brown or until they caramelize. Saute for about 6 to 7 minutes. Add the chillies and the fried curry leaves. Saute for 2 minutes.

4. Add the fried chicken and mix them well for about 5 minutes. Keep stirring for 5 minutes so that they dont stick to the pan. Sprinkle lemon juice and close the pan with a lid. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

This fry is my personal favorite with Mutton Biriyani , salad and pappad :)
