So I hope you will try this dish on a cold day and enjoy with a bowl of soup...YUM...Take Care...


Chicken – 200 gms boneless cut into strips

Ginger Garlic Paste-1 tsp

Chilli powder-1 tsp

Coriander Leaves / Cilantro-2 tblspn chopped finely

Salt to taste


Bread crumbs as needed (Recipe Below)

Oil for shallow frying


How to make Breadcrumbs:

I usually put my leftover bread in freezer for a few days, this makes the bread go hard. Then when I need breadcrumbs I take those bread and break them into small pieces and powder them in a blender.This will give you coarse breadcrumbs.

How to make Chicken Nuggets:

Cut chicken into thin strips and marinate it with some chilli powder, salt, ginger garlic paste and cilantro for 15 mins.

Beat one egg in a shallow bowl.Take breadcrumbs in another bowl, if your wish you could season them with some salt,chilli powder and any herbs.

Take one chicken strip and dip it in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs.Coat it well and arrange it in a plate.

Heat oil for frying and fry these nuggets till golden on both sides.

Remove on a kitchen paper.

Serve hot with ketchup.

  22. ashesnroses..yes you could do till the breadcrumbs coating step and arrange it in a nonstick tray and freeze it for couple of hours.After that you could take everything and put it in a ziplock bag and label it..Then freeze it untill use.Hope this helps..

  23. @vidhas sota chunk is best substitute for chicken.

  24. Aarthi, can it be microwaved instead of frying?

  25. Microwave cooking for how much time? And we need to grease the plate before putting it in microwave cooking mode?

  26. @AnonymousIf you have convection mode your can bake it..
