I just love it when i am sent a recipe with the pic and i cant wait to post it right away! A few days ago a dear friend of mine Sanjay Chadha from Madrid made some chilli chicken and was so kind to send me the pic of the dish.I jokingly asked him for a pic of him cooking and he sent that too! I put it on my facebook cooking page and his personal pic had more likes and comments! I was tickled and realised that yes a man in the kitchen is quite becoming for many women.
Anyways back to the recipe.. Chilli Chicken is a fusion dish and very popular in India. The ample use of ginger garlic and chilli sauce gives this recipe a unique taste. Some people make it by deep frying the chicken pieces ( i have put up a recipe in that style) and some arent so keen on deep frying. For the latter this recipe is just for you.
Chopped green chillies can be added for a spicier effect.
Thank you soo much Mr. Chadha….or Chadhajee as you were fondly called on my cooking page 🙂
