I wanted to surprise my kids with a fun meal once they come home from school. Fried chicken is easily right on top of that list.
As I usually do, will break this into simple parts.
Part 1: In a bowl combine together chilly powder, turmeric powder, garlic powder, ginger garlic paste, soya sauce and salt. Taste it and balance it. Marinate the chicken in this paste for at least 30 mins.
Part 2: To the marinating chicken add a tablespoon of maida and a tablespoon of corn flour. Crack in a egg. Massage this into the chicken. Leave it for about 30 mins.
Part 3: Deep fry in oil. The oil must be hot but not smoking hot like me. Once you put the chicken pieces in, reduce to medium heat. You can either fry the chicken as is or coat it with breadcrumbs. My kids decided breadcrumb coated pieces are better.
