Kerala Chicken Fry


Kerala Chicken Fry

Here is a spicy and delicious chicken drumstick fry.Fried chicken and chapatis/ parottas is a usual favorite combo in hotels and fast food outlets in Kerala. It is spicy and crispy outside and juicy in the center. The wonderful flavor of aromatic spices, fried onions and curry leaves makes this a much loved chicken delicacy of Kerala. This is my mom recipe. Usually back home it is deep fried,but I have followed the pan fry method.



Ingredients
Chicken drumsticks- 4-5

1) Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Whole red chilly-8-10
( Or two tsp of Kashmiri chilly powder
Add as per your tolerance )
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp( optional)
lemon juice- a few drops
Rice flour-1/2 tsp(optional)

2)Butter milk- 1 cup
Salt
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp


3)Sliced onion- 1 medium
Sliced ginger- 1 inch thick
Left over chicken marinade
Curry leaves



Clean and pat dry the chicken drumsticks( remove the skin) and make two or three gashes. Mix the ingredients listed under two with chicken and keep in refrigerated for at least an hour . Take out the chicken and discard the buttermilk marinade.( this helps to make the fry juicy in the center but if you are short of time you can avoid this step and follow the rest of the recipe)

Mean while remove the seeds of the dry red chilly and soak it in a little warm salt water for half an hour. Grind this into a fine paste along with ginger and garlic and a spring of curry leaves. Mix all the other ingredients listed under one and marinate the chicken for two hours. Just before frying sprinkle rice flour.Pour oil,approximately 1 1/2 cup in a pan and heat it to medium high temperature and carefully drop in the chicken. First fry in high and then reduce the heat to low medium. Fry on one side for about four to five minutes and then turn around and continue to fry till done and till it is nice and crispy.
Mix together all the ingredients listed under three and fry them in the same oil that you used to fry the chicken. Arrange this on a plate and place the chicken on top. You can drizzle a few drops of lemon juice before serving.

Hope you will all enjoy..
