Fried Chicken


Fried Chicken is comfort food in K's home. It is the panacea for every disappointment, stress ... whatever ails you :) We don't generally have fried food in our home, but this is an exception. This is K's signature dish.

5 chicken drumsticks
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp vinegar
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
Remove the skin from the drumsticks, clean and keep aside. In a bowl mix salt +vinegar + chilli powder + turmeric + cumin + curry powder. Using a knife, make a couple of slits on the chicken, add to the marinade and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a flat bottomed pan. Add the chicken pieces and cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes or till the chicken is well cooked, turning the drumsticks a couple of times. Serve hot with Parathas and Raita. Enjoy !
(If you don't want to fry it, you can grill it or bake it too. Tastes equally good :) )
