Nadan Chicken Fry

 

Most of the chicken fry I had been either too hard or wont be cooked proper inside. This recipe is one of the best method to make good chicken fry. Chicken fried will be soft inside, crispy outside and will be cooked perfect and the curry leaves fried along with it gives a special taste.  The steaming part of chicken does all the trick. Try it out, I can bet you will then make chicken fry this way only. And thanks a lot Susamma Aunty for teaching me this method.
