Choose a young bird. If the Chicken pieces are tough the Masala will not go into the pieces when marinated. The pieces tends to turn rubbery when fried, if the bird is tough. It is always advisable to buy a dressed chicken weighing approximately 1 Kg and then cutting into required pieces.

The chicken pieces should be marinated in the Masalas at least for one hour for the pieces to absorb the flavours well.

Garlic Powder:

Garlic is the ingredient which takes the tastes of this dish to another level altogether! Toss the pieces in Garlic powder at the very end. You will see how the flavours come out divinely! This powder is available easily on –line. If the Garlic Powder is not available you can sprinkle Chaat Masala. This will also enhance the taste quite nicely.

Food Colour:

This recipe does not include red Chilli Powder. The spiciness comes from the combination of Green Chillies and Garlic. Because of this, the dish will be light in colour. If you like to improve the presentation and visual delight, add a little food colour. You may leave it out if you do not like the idea.

Frying Technique:

Put in a few pieces at a time and fry on medium heat until the pieces start to change colour. Once the colour starts to change raise the flame and fry on a high flame till nice and brown.
