Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breasts cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 tablespoon coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • light cooking oil enough for deep frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • bamboo skewers

Instructions

  • Marinate chicken strips yogurt, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, spices and salt. Allow it to sit in the fridge for at least an hour or so. For best results, marinate over night.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan, large enough to fry 3-4 strips at a time. Dip each strip into plain flour, coating well on all sides, before adding them to hot oil.
  • Deep fry the chicken strips till crisp and golden on all sides. Drain on paper towels, poke through with skewers and serve with Coriander-Mint Chutney.
  • Alternatively, you can avoid deep frying by simply grilling the marinated chicken on a hot grill till tender and done.
