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!( 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 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 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!!



  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)
  4. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg milk mixture and drop them in the flour mixture.Make sure the chicken is evenly coated with dry flour.Again drop the coated chicken in the egg milk mixture and then roll them in the dry flour mixture.
  5. Drop the chicken in medium hot oil and fry till crisp and browned. Serve with dips of your choice.. I served with a veg.mayo salad! Yumm
