  • Chicken - 1 Kg, cut into medium pieces
  • Green chillies - 2-3 Nos, slit
  • Curry leaves - 2-3 sprig
  • Grated coconut - ½ cup
  • Salt - ¼ Teaspoon
  • Coconut oil as required

For Chilli paste:

  • Dried kashmiri red chillies - 14-18 Nos
  • Water as required - 1 - 1 ½ cup approx:

For Marination:

  • Ginger-garlic paste - 1 ½ Tablespoon
  • Lemon Juice - 1 Tablespoon
  • Turmeric powder - ½ Teaspoon
  • Fennel powder - ½ Teaspoon
  • Garam Masala - 1 Teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  1. Clean and wash the chicken pieces, drain the water completely and set aside.
  2. Boil the dried red chillies in 1 - 1 ½ cup of water for about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let it cool, then grind to a smooth paste by adding little water. Use kashmiri red chillies only, it's less spicy and gives nice color to the fry.
  4. Take ½ cup of grated coconut, 1 teaspoon of prepared chilli paste, ¼ teaspoon of salt in a bowl, combine well and set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, add in the cleaned chicken, remaining chilli paste and the ingredients mentioned in 'For Marination' and mix well. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  6. Heat enough coconut oil to fry the chicken pieces in a wide pan. Fry the chicken pieces as batches until the chicken is cooked well and turns golden in color on medium heat. Transfer to a paper towel and set aside.
  7. Once finished with frying the chicken pieces, add the curry leaves and green chillies into the same oil and fry until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel and set aside.
  8. Add the prepared coconut mixture into the oil and deep fry till golden in color on high heat. Transfer to a paper towel and set aside. The coconut may burn fast, so be careful while frying the coconut.
  9. Add the fried curry leaves, green chillies and coconut on top of the fried chicken. Serve hot :)
