    This is an excellent recipe, and thanks to the person uploaded this on KK.


    Nothing new in the recipe. Pretty well known and tried millions of times ----Indianised chilly chicken. (Actually there is nothing called chilli chicken in authentic Chinese cuisine)


    vow superb taste really good everybody loved


    the chicken can also be fried with a coat of cornflakes to can dip the chicken in the batter and then dip it in the cornflakes crumbs...and then fry it.. the result would be superbly lip smacking.. please use cornflakes only and nothing else, nt even cornflour.
