Crispy Fried Chicken Wings


Crispy Fried Chicken Wings

This is one of my favorites..good crispy fried chicken which is a little spicy too. Mostly I make curry, roast or bake chicken but once in a while it is fun to change it a bit.There is little garam masala and chilly powder to spice it up a bit and make it extra flavorful.This recipe is for all those fried chicken lovers out there :)

Ingredients
Chicken wings- 1 lb

To marinate
Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
Chilly powder/paprika- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Chicken masala/Garam masala-1/2
salt to taste
Corn starch- 2 tbs

Egg-2
Milk- 1 tbs

All purpose flour- 1 1/2 cup
Garlic salt- 1 tsp
Onion powder- 2 tsp
Paprika- 1 tsp
Oil- 1 1/3 cup
(I used canola,you can also substitute with peanut oil)


Cut wings in  between the joint into two. Cut the tips off the wings at the last joint. Wash and pat dry using paper towel and keep the chicken ready.
Note: If you have time you can add buttermilk with the chicken and keep in fridge over night to make it soft and juicy in the center.When it is ready to be fried drain off the excess buttermilk and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Mix in with the chicken all the ingredients listed under 'to marinate' and keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

To prepare for the dredging in a bowl beat two eggs and one tbs of milk.
In a separate plate mix in the flour,onion powder,garlic salt and paprika. Taste the flour and if needed add more salt or garlic salt.
Take each piece of  chicken and roll in the seasoned flour, then into the egg mixture and then back into the flour. Shake off the excess flour and keep aside
Meanwhile heat oil in a heavy bottom wide pan or a cast-iron skillet. Fry chicken in batches. Do not over crowd and fry in a uniform heat. Keep on turning the chicken between every minute and fry till it is golden brown and crispy. This will take at least 7-8 minutes per batch. Once done drain on paper towel to take off the excess oil. Crispy chicken wings is ready..

Try this...
Hope you ill all enjoy

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
