Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Anyone out there who hates fried chicken (not the vegetarians)..No I didn't see any hands rising up. I know everyone loves fried foods, specially chicken. We are a great fan of fried chicken. I always try new variation of fried chicken whenever I make it. Because I am on a mission to find the best fried chicken recipe in the world. So here comes my experimental part, I made this couple of weeks back and I am telling ya, this is one of the best fried chicken I have ever tasted.

I don't know where I came across this recipe, but this was in my mind for a while. So when I decided to give it a try, I added some of my indian masala and spices and customized it as per my taste. The end result was amazing and hubby gave me his signature wow smile. I used buttermilk as the base of the marination because the acid in the buttermilk somehow tenderize the meat and make it even more succulent.

So next time when you decide to make fried chicken, you know what to do. Am I RIGHT GUYS..


Chicken - 1 kg
Oil for Deep frying

For Marination:
Buttermilk - 2 cups
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tblspn
Salt to taste
Pepper Powder to taste
Garam Masala Powder - 1 tsp

For Flour Coating:
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups
Salt to taste
Chilli powder - 2 tsp


Take a mixing bowl and add in the chicken. Now add all the marination ingredients in it and mix well.

Let this marinate for 3-4 hours or overnight in the fridge.

Now remove this fridge and let it come to room temparature.

Take flour, salt, chilli powder in a plate and mix well..

Dip each chicken piece in the flour mixture. Coat it well on all sides.

Place them in a rack  and leave it for 10 mins, so that it gets dry and the flour coats each piece well.

Heat oil for deep frying.

Drop few pieces of chicken in. Don't crowd the oil. Deep fry the chicken on medium flame for 15 mins. Now increase the flame and cook for 5 more mins, so that it gets nice colour.

Drain the chicken in paper towel.

Serve with hot sauce or ketchup.

Take all your ingredients
First start by marinating the chicken
add pepper, salt and garam masala to it
add in crushed ginger and garlic

While it is marinating..Prepare the dry mix for this..Take flour, salt and chilli powder in a plate
and mix well
now take the marinated chicken
and drendge them in the flour mix
coat well on all sides
arrange them in a rack
do this for everything
let this sit for a while so that the coating sticks to the chicken
heat oil in a kadai
drop the chicken in
fry till golden brown
with some hot sauce

  3. Hi,

    If I wish to make a vegetarian version using this method, what can I replace chicken with?
    I loved this method and want to try the same using some veg ingredient.

  4. This is a great recipe, Aarti!! One question, instead of deep frying, if we were to bake the chicken, would it achieve the same effect?

  5. I love fried chic anytime...this sure looks good

  11. Hi Aarthi,
    It looks awesome. I cant wait to try this out.


  12. can we mix butter and milk and make butter milk ourselves ? :P

  13. @Red ScintillaNo you can't mix butter and milk to make buttermilk. You can take warm milk add few drops of lemon juice and leave it aside for 15 mins. Now use that for buttermilk. Make sure to use warm milk, if you use hot one, the milk will curdle.
