  • 500 grams chicken thighs/legs
  • 2 1/2 tbsps red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • A few curry leaves
  • 1 cup coconut oil (or to deep fry)



Step 1

Clean chicken pieces thoroughly and make slits on it so that the marinade is absorbed into the chicken.

Mix together the chili powder, pepper powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, vinegar and salt to form a thick paste. Rub the marinade thoroughly into the chicken pieces. Let it rest in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

Heat oil in a wok. Add curry leaves and fry for a few seconds. Place the chicken pieces in the oil, and fry each side in medium heat till the meat is well done.

Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and garnish with lemon wedges.
