Ginger Chicken Recipe

I love the flavour of ginger in my chicken dish, i have already shared a ginger pepper chicken recipe in my blog which i love so much. It is so easy to make but taste so yum..I make ginger chicken little different too, it is made by frying chicken separately and tossing it in a ginger flavoured sauce, it taste good too, goes really well with noodles and fried rice.. But i always wanted to post a spicy yet complete ginger flavoured chicken dish. Thats when i came across this post from ria's blog and totally loved it.. 

I made it the coming week itself and it turned out to be super good. I planned to get some boneless chicken and try this out, but unfortunately i couldn't get my hands on them. So i used fresh bonein chicken, still it tasted good.

I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

  1. Thanks for showing step by step recipe of the ginger chicken. Wonderfully prepared.

  2. delicious gravy... mouth watering..

  3. Why do you call it ginger chicken, I do not think the ginger taste would be dominating, as many other ingredients are used ? Does it give a gingery taste ?

  4. @swaSince 1/2 cup of ginger is used, that flavour will be dominating...

  6. Yesterday I tried it. Every one in my family liked it.

  7. Could u pls tell me why we need to double fry the chicken? Instead can we add it straight after adding
    the masala

  8. Hi. Can I avoid the vinegar in this recipe??

  9. Came out really awesome mam. You rock as always. You are an inspiration.

  10. tried the recipe. But found bitterness in that. Even got burning sensation after eating . Kindly kelp. is it causing because I used more ginger.

    1. adding more ginger may cause bitter taste.
