Kerala Chicken Fry

This recipe has a long follower list and hope the fever runs thro'. At first, I saw this recipe from  Pazham Pappadam Payasam and bookmarked .. But ,over the days I almost forgot until Priya  posted few days ago . Her picture was so sumptuous that made everyone drool ,including me. Savi also tried the same recipe and told it's sold out.. Immediately , off to market and bought some tender legs , though am a seafood lover and hates chicken.. Seriously , I must say, it was mind blowing.. .. Yummylicious..

Ingredients :

Chicken drum sticks -- 5 pieces
Red chilly powder -- 1 tbsp
Coriander powder -- 1 tsp
Chicken masala powder -- 1 tsp, ( I used eastern brand )
Turmeric powder -- ¼ tsp
Garam masala -- ¼ tsp
Salt -- to taste

Lime juice -- 1 tsp
Water --2 tbsp

Oil --  as needed for shallow frying

Other Ingredients :

Ginger a small piece
Garlic -- 1 clove
Sliced onions --½ cup, ( optional )

Curry leaves -- few leaves

Method :

Clean and make some slits here and there on the chicken drumsticks and keep aside.Prepare a marinade using th ered chilli powder, coriander powder , lime juice, garam masala, Salt , turmeric powder and chicken masla powder using 2 tbsp of water. Rub this marinade on the drumsticks and leave overnite or atleast min 2 hrs.

Heat a kadai with oil and fry the ginger ,garlic ,curry leaves . Saute well. Followed by thinly sliced onions and saute. Finally add the marinated drumsticks and scald well. Cook the drumsticks in medium low heat for 10 minutes so that the meat inside cooks well and outer layer turns crispy..

Happy eating guys ,
