Street Food Style Chicken Fry Recipe - Thattukadai Chicken Fry Recipe

Chicken fry or fried chicken has been my all time favorite. Specially the street side south indian ones, Those crispy masala coated chicken which has a spicy exterior and a juicy interior, thinking of it makes my mouth water. I know it is not hygiene to buy them from those street side shops, the thing which concern me a lot is the oil which they use for frying them. I know they keep on frying in the same oil again and again. So i stopped buying them and started to make fried chicken at home. 

I would never say that fried chicken is healthy, but atleast when you make them at home, specially with good quality sunflower oil available in the market, these would be a little on the safer side. After all these kind of dishes are guilty pleasures right!

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
