Ingredients for Chicken Fry
Chicken - I used boneless chicken thigh for making chicken fry. Chicken thighs will result in more juicy chicken. But chicken breast can be used as well.
Fresh Produce - ginger, garlic, curry leaves are freshly ground and added to chicken fry for flavor.
Spices- chilli, coriander, turmeric and garam masala powder adds so much taste and flavor to the chicken.
Lemon - I prefer to add extra lemon juice or vinegar to the chicken to get rid of the chicken smell. it also adds a fresh taste to the chicken.
Oil - any neutral oil is used. But personally for frying chicken or fish, I like to use coconut oil. It adds so much flavor.
