Spicy Chicken Fry

Spicy Chicken Fry Recipe

Ingredients: (Serves 2-3)

  • Chicken – 500g (Cut into medium size pieces)
  • Oil – 4 Tbsp
  • Green chilli – 4-5
  • Onion – 1 medium
  • Pepper powder – ¾ tsp
  • Garam Masala/Chicken Masala – 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves
  • Lemon – 1

To Marinate:

  • Ginger garlic paste – 3 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Fennel powder – ½ tsp
  • Vinegar – 3 tsp
  • Curry leaves – a handful
  • Salt

(Note: Vary the amount of chilli and pepper as per your spice level)
Method: (With Step-by-Step Pictures)

In a blender grind the green chilli well. (I have taken green chilli which are big in size. These will be very less spicy when compared to the smaller ones)


To the grinded green chilli add all ingredients to marinate and mix well. Add cleaned chicken into it. Cover it and keep it in the fridge for minimum 1 hour.


Take the marinated chicken in a pressure cooker. Cover it with the lid without putting the cooker whistle. Steam the same. ( A steady steam should come for 2 min)



Steaming part helps to cook the inside of the chicken pieces and makes it soft. (When you open the cooker if stock is there continue cooking without putting the cooker lid. Keep stirring in between and stock should almost dry up)



Heat oil in a nonstick pan and add the chicken pieces. On the top of chicken pieces put sliced onion, curry leaves and sprinkle the spice powders.


Fry in medium – high flame by turning chicken pieces in between until they are brown in color. This recipe requires less oil only, add additional oil only if its sticking to the pan. (When turning the chicken pieces each time, put the onion back on the top of chicken pieces)



If you like the tangy taste, squeeze half of a lemon on the top of the chicken pieces. Serve hot.

If you are looking for another option of chicken fry check out Nadan Chicken Fry or Grilled Chicken. Its equally good!!!!!!
