Chilli Chicken Desi Style....

Although the original recipe is derived from Chinese, but the authentic recipe is very bland and wont appeal to the majority of Indian taste buds and therefore I have put a little desi twist here ( which is blink-and you-will-miss-it :P ) to make it palatable for Desi Janta.

Serves: 4 people
Preparation Time: 25 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins

  • 700 gms of Boneless Chicken
  • 1 Egg White
  • 2 tbsp of Pepper Powder
  • 3 tbsp of Corn Flour
  • 3 tbsp of Soya Sauce
  • 1 diced Onion
  • 1 diced Spring Onion
  • 1 diced Capsicum
  • 2-3 Green Chillies
  • 1 tbsp of Chicken Masala Powder
  • Salt- as per taste
  • Oil- very minimal
  • Cut the Boneless Chicken Pieces into small parts
  • Add 1 egg white in it
  • Add 1 tbsp of Pepper Powder
  • Add 2 tbsp of Corn Flour
  • Mix these well with the chicken and keep it aside for atleast 15 mins (You can even referigerate it)
  • Now Heat oil in a Pan and fry the Chicken Pieces till they are cooked from both sides
  • Dont deep fry them, they should only get tender so that they look white from both sides when they are done
  • Keep the fried chicken pieces aside
  • Now Drain the excess Oil or Heat about 2 tbsp of Oil in another Pan and add diced Onions, Capsicum, Spring Onions and Green Chillies in it
  • Stir fry for a minute and then add 1 tbsp of Chicken Masala( this is the Desi original recipe its not added)
  • Add 1 tbsp pf Pepper Powder and stir fry
  • Mix 1 tbsp of Corn Flour and Soya Sauce in a bowl of warm water (You can also use Chicken Stock)
  • Add this to the Pan, add salt and stir fry for a couple of minutes
You can serve it with Egg Fried Rice, Plain Boiled Rice or Noodles.
