Chilli Chicken



Chilli Chicken

Chilli chicken is the most popular Indo-Chinese recipe and perhaps the easiest.No one needs any introduction to this popular dish. I am in love with spicy chilli chicken dry version, with lots of chilly.Fried rice and chilli chicken is my favorite combo. You might think I am crazy after reading this recipe:) I have added green chilli,dry red chilli, chilli flakes, chilli sauce and chilli oil. It is not fiery hot but it has the intense flavor of chillies which I love. I have added chili oil which is not spicy but has the flavor and the pretty color of dry red chilli. It is optional. It is readily available in market or you can make it at home.

Ingredients
Boneless chicken- 1 lb
Egg- 1(optional)
Corn starch- 2 tbs
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Salt a pinch
oil for frying

Onion-1 cut into cubes
Garlic - finely minced -2 tbs
Bell pepper- 1 cut into cubes
Dry red chilli-3
Green chilli-4
Chilli flakes- 1/3 tsp (optional)
Soya sauce-2 tbs
Chilli sauce - 1 1/2 tsp
Chilli oil- 2 tsp (optional)
Sugar- 1/3 tsp
Spring onions for garnish


Chilli Oil

Cut chicken into small uniform pieces. You can cut it into uniform cubes. Personally I like the slant cuts because it is easy to cook and makes it nice and crispy.
Mix into the chicken, one egg, corn starch, pepper powder and a pinch of salt. Keep aside for 10 minutes. Heat 3/4 cup of oil in a pan and deep fry the chicken pieces till crisp and golden brown.
Drain out from the oil and keep aside.
In another pan pour  a little oil and fry minced garlic and dry red chilli. Saute till there is a nice aroma. Add the onions and after a minute add bell pepper and green chilly. Saute in medium high flame for about a minute and add the fried chicken and chilly flakes. Toss all together. In a small bowl mix in soya sauce, chilly sauce,chilly oil and sugar and pour this over the chicken and give it a good toss. Allow the liquid to get well coated and absorbed and garnish with spring onions. Serve warm.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy.
