Chicken 65:

Chicken that hatched in 65 hours is named chicken65 technically. Maybe they prepared this recipe with one of such chicken!!! Well...I used regular chicken tho' . For the first time....I used artificial color to my food! Generally I try to stick to turmeric, saffron and lemon/orange rings for color! It was simply irresistable to see restaraunt chicken 65! So...no harm to use it occassionally, alright!

One more thing, why I prefer bone-in and skin-on chicken...bone-in can really withstand heat and gets cooked in depth(never turns rubbery like boneless ones) Chicken skin is suppose to be delicasy, it tastes better when fried or in curry! If you are afraid of saturated fat...better avoid it!

Now it has become popular street food, in India!

Ingredients:

Chicken(I used bone-in, skin-on chunks)
Ginger 2" minced
Garlic 3 cloves minced
Salt
MSG 1/4 Spoon
Soy sauce few spoons
Lemon juice few spoons
Corn flour few spoons
Red food color(organic would be fine)
Chili powder 2 spoons
White pepper 1 spoon
Black pepper 1/2 + 1/2 spoon
Cloves 3 - powderd
Oil for deep frying.

Method:

Combine all the ingredients togather(except oil, chicken and 1/2 spoon of pepper).

Now add chicken to it and mix well. Le this sit in fridge for real good hours(4-6 hours)

Heat oil in a deep frying pan. When it coem to smoky hot, fry few chicken pieces at a time. Leave them over kitchen tissues for a while. Repeat the same for each batch.

Then sprinkle pepper on top...while they are still warm.

Serve warm as a snack/appetizers/ side dish.
