PAN FRIED CHICKEN



A simple dry chicken preparation that can be served as a snack or side dish.

Ingredients:
Chicken ... 250 gms
Ginger ...... julienned
Garlic ...... 1 tbsp
Green chillies .. 1-2
Coriander leaves .. handful
Mint leaves ...... few
Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1 tsp
Cumin powder ...... 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder .. 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder ... 1/4 tsp (add more if you like it spicy)
Lemon juice ................ 1-2 tbsps (as per your liking)
Salt ........... to taste
Oil ............. 4 tbsps
Onion rings, lemon wedges and coriander leaves for garnishing.


Method:
1. Heat the oil in a wok and fry the chicken pieces turning sides until light brown.
2. Tip in the ginger, garlic and green chillies and saute for a minute.
3. Add the salt, greens and spice powders and mix well.
