Chennai Fried Chicken

HI all,

I got this recipe from website. This dish was my all time favourite and I didnt know how to prepare this. I came across his video few days back and wanted to cook this dish very badly.

Today prepared this dish. But the original recipe says that the chicken has to be soaked in the marination for 6 - 7 hours. But when we are in a hurry we can soak the same in the warm water for hrs.

As I work, I knew that I will not be having any time to defreeze the chicken and then soak for 2 hrs also. So I had marinated the same in the night and left in the fridge (not the freezer). Do not keep in the fridge for more than a day. And if you feel that you cannot prepare the next day, just shift the marinated chicken to the freezer.

The original recipe doenst have lemon extract added to the marination while I did. Still it came out well. crispy and tasty... Of course Juicy.

He calls this recipe as CHENNAI CHUKKA CHICKEN.. But Iam just going to call this as Fried chicken........
