Chicken Pakora


Chicken Pakora



Good evening folks!

So a couple of days back I had posted a chicken pakora making scenes and I have been meaning to share the recipe ever since. This one is super simple to prepare and I am sure all the ingredients are readily available in your pantry.

Onion pakoras are my mom's favorite. So one day when she had leftover chicken breasts, we made it like this and chicken pakora happened. And if you have a food processor, I bet nothing can be easier that making these chicken pakoras especially when you have sudden guests. Great with a hot cup of Chai. 

I usually prepare with the below mentioned spices, but last day I prepared with a Frankie masala powder which had similar ingredients and was good just as well. Though I haven't clicked pictures of the process, will update the pictures in the near future.

Without further a do, lets make this crispy yummy snack.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 350 grams chicken breast, cubed or sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1/4 Turmeric powder
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp Kashmiri Red chilli powder
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • 3-4 sprigs of curry leaves, chopped
  • Chopped Coriander leaves 
  • 1/4 tsp pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder 
  • 1/4 Garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika and or Amchur powder (optional) 
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp Corn flour
  • 3 tbsp Rice flour



Instructions :

  1. In a bowl, add in your cut pieces of chicken breast, add ginger garlic paste, salt, lemon juice, Turmeric powder and Chilli powder. **
  2. Now add in your sliced onions and your greens (green chilli, Coriander leaves, and curry leaves). 
  3. Now add in all your powders - cumin, pepper, Garam masala, paprika (optional), and Kashmiri Red Chilli powder and mix. Drop in an egg and mix well. 
  4. Finally add in your corn flour and rice flour and toss well to coat. 
  5. Scoop into medium hot oil and fry for 3 minutes each side and until golden brown and crisp. *



Notes:
**you may store the chicken at this stage.
*Be careful not to burn the onions, burnt onions taste awful so beware. 

Ps : The pic was taken in a hurry, as it was time for iftar, will be updating pictures. In Sha Allah.
