On our regular casual weekend outings in Nasik , we just saw a huge hiring add outside what looked like a prospective restaurant or a food joint. And yes, that was a hiring add for KFC staff..yes Kentucky Fried Chicken!! Wow…I was overwelmed…finally an outlet in Nasik, no more need to stand in overcrowded Mc Donalds outlet or wait at the Subways just to be told that they are out of Bread!( yes..it happened to me twice here, at Subway , when they told me they are out of bread and the fresh batch would take 25-30 mins to bake…Gosh what an Irony!!They seem to have taken their punch line too seriously! eat Fresh!) At Mumbai , it was just for granted that you have access to the best , be it food or clothing or anything!! Its only when you lose it , that you realise the significance!! ( Man, i miss travelling by local trains and those rickshaws..it was just so convinient!) Ok so back to us gazing the “KFC coming soon” board…and my husband was like, you better apply for a cooks job there..to know their secret crispy fried flaky chicken recipe!! And i secretly agreed….and we laughed it off… But despite all attempts at home , i wasnt able to get my chicken right….that was until today, when I perfected my recipe , to get just that crispy fried goodness on my plate….!! And I really didnt get time for the garnish and presentation , since it was just made in the spur of the moment! Nevertheless the taste is just divine!! Crisp, super light and juicy inside!!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Marinate the chicken slices in all the marinade ingredients ,preferrably overnight or atleast 2-3 hours.
  2. Mix the egg and milk and beat it to mix thoroughly. Sieve the maida with baking powder and salt. Add the herbs add paprika and mix.
  3. Heat oil in a kadhai.(You can deep fry big chunks of chicken if you like, I have used slices , to reduce the oil used for frying,since the oil gets dark with the flour , so cant be reused) Dip the chicken pieces in the egg milk mixture and drop them
  4. Serve with dips of your choice.. I served with a veg.mayo salad! Yumm

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
