This is a very simple to cook and tasty desi style chicken fry...It goes well with rice,chapathies , parottas or bread, with some salad as side dish.. The dish does not contain any tomatoes,but the best flavour is brought out by adding vinegar..Just try it and enjoy the difference... Another plus point is that if you keep some chicken fried this way in the fridge, you can easily transform it into a delicious desi style curry by adding some maggi coconut milk.. For this purpose dissolve 4 heaped tablspoons of Maggi cococnut milk powder into 16 oz of warm water and bring it slowly to a boil..(measurement for 1.400 kgs of fried chicken) Add the chicken fried this way, into this, stir well and simmer for some time till the gravy is no longer runny, but thick.. However it should not be of a coating consistency, but thick enough...Then only will it taste yummy.. Pls try to make a curry this way and enjoy the delicious flavour and taste...It is really scrumptious and goes well with rice, rotis, bread ,palappams ,velleppams,idiyappams etc....ENJOYYY!

I just love children, and I wanted people to think a little about how we treat our precious little ones, when we are busy and not always being maybe as thoughtful as we should be. Please concentrate on the happy memories of your lovely children, I am sure there were many. I love your blog, I am going to try this recipe, I love to try new things.
