  • 1 kg Chicken on bone (cut in medium or bite sized pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 7-8 curry leaves finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon green chili paste you may adjust as per your liking
  • 2 tablespoons kashmiri red chilli powder you may adjust as per your liking
  • 1 ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • 2 tablespoons thick yogurt or hung curd
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • 6-7 tablespoons cornflour
  • Oil for frying
  • Chaat masala for sprinkling


  • In a large bowl, add chicken pieces
  • Then, add all the ingredients from garlic paste to salt, mentioned below
  • Combine everything nicely
  • Cover and allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours under refrigeration
  • Add cornflour and mix well
  • Heat oil in deep pan or Kadhai (wok)
  • Once the heats up well, carefully slide-in the marinated chicken and fry them on medium high heat until done.
  • Take them out and drain onto an absorbent towel.
  • Sprinkle some chaat masala on fried chicken
  • Serve them with onions, lemon wedges on the side


  • Be sure to drain the water completely form the chicken before marinating it. We want the masala coat to be without any liquid, so drain every drop of water from it
  • Take out the marinated chicken from the refrigerator and allow it rest on the counter for few minutes before frying
  • DO NOT fry the chicken on low heat as this will make the coating soggy and oily
