Easy chicken fry with Jeerakam/Cumin pwd

I had gone out sometime back to buy some provision and was stuck in this strong shamal winds -a dessert dust storm which has cast everything in brown.It just blows in and obscures your vision.Being out in it is confusing,abrasive and a little frightening too..People get disoriented as the wind blows and the sand falls down like a blanket across the landscape.I ended up reaching home with my mouth full of sand.
Here goes a recipe which I prepared from the freshly bought chicken !!!

For marination,
Chicken pieces-1/4 kilo
Ginger/Garlic paste-1 tsp
Curd-2 Tbs
Cumin pwd-2tsp
Pepper pwd-1tsp
Chilly pwd-1tsp

For frying,
Garlic cloves-6-7
Green chillies-3-4 slit
Curry leaves-2 strings
Chilly garlic paste-2 tsp

Bread crumps to coat and salt and oil as desired.

  • Cut the chicken into small pieces.
  • Marinate chicken with all the above mentioned ingrediants and keep for 30 mints.
  • Coat chicken with bread crumps,fry them and keep aside.
  • Saute garlic,green chillies and curry leaves in oil
  • Add chilly garlic paste to the fried masala.
  • Add fried chicken to this and you can add red color(optional) to enhance this dish.

This can be served as a good starter.
