Chilli Chicken Recipe / How to Make Restaurant Style Chilli Chicken Dry

Even though i cook a lot for my family and for this blog. Someday i want to be lazy and indulge myself from restaurant foods. During those days we would dine outside in some of our favorite restaurants, but most of the time, i love to order some foods, cuddle up in a blanket and watch my favorite shows on TV enjoying those hot foods.

Some of those are the coupon sites,  I came across this site called CupoNation, which offers so much deals and coupons on food, fashion, electronics, travel and lots more, such as Zovi coupons.

  16. Hello Aarthi,

    Made it first time. Went perfect in every way. But I did not follow your quantities at all. For example, I had cut down on cornflour to almost 1/3rd, just one heaped teaspoon of All Purpose Flour / Maida, increased chili sauce quite a bit, cut on zinger and garlic, soy sauce etc.
    Even after this, the whole family and guests perticularly were not willing to belive it was home made.
    Thanks again and all the best wishes
