Moisture is the biggest enemy when it comes to frying and messing up the kitchen. Eliminate it and you will be able to enjoy the chicken without the headache of clean up.
The key ingrediants are:
- Chicken, cut into bite sized pieces.
- Corn Flour.
- Spice Mix.
I wash the chicken and let it sit in a colander so it can air dry for about 20-30 minutes.
Prepare a spice mix. I mixed together powdered pepper, kabab chinni (Piper Cubeba, as its very close to All Spice), dried herbs, paprika and salt. Do not add any liquids like vinegar, lemon juice or soy sauce. Using a spoon, stir these dry powders along with the chicken. Then sprinkle in corn flour. Mix using the spoon. Do not use your fingers. There must be enough to coat the chicken pieces. Leave it alone for at least 20-30 minutes.
Heat oil. Put pieces one at a time. Fry till they get a golden color.
