Telangana Restaurant Style Chicken Fry | Chicken Roast

Telangana Restaurant Style Chicken Fry | Chicken Roast - A strong flavoured & aromatic recipe which goes well with Rice, Chapati or Poori is CHICKEN FRY in Telangana Restaurant Style.

Generally, Chicken Fry is marinated with various masalas and deep fried in Oil, but the Telangana style is different. It's more of a roast, but is called Chicken Fry.

Telangana Chicken fry is a semi-dry dish made with very little Oil and the spices are scraped off the pan and fried.

Traditionally in Telangana households, this recipe is made with a bit of Tamarind juice which gives that uniqueness to this dish. This is unlike the recipes made without Tamarind juice.

With a few tips, this simple recipe can be made and enjoyed just like the authentic Telangana Chicken fry that is served in the restaurants.

  1. Slice the Chicken to medium cut.

  2. As the spices fry and get mildly charred, sticking to the pan, stir and continue the process till the fry becomes aromatic.

  3. Do not finely chop the Onions or they just get mixed with the fry and we cannot taste them after it is done. Slice the Onion into large pieces so that the masala sticks to the pieces well and tastes good after they are fried.

  4. Tamarind juice is usually not added to the Chicken Fry, but if added in small proportion it enhances the taste. It’s optional if you do not like it.

  5. Use an Iron pan for making this dish to get the best results. Avoid using a non-stick pan.
