Ingredients:

  • 500 gm boneless chicken (preferably breast pieces)
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp red chilly paste
  • 1 tsp red food colour
  • 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp maida (all purpose flour)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying
  • Samosa Pattis (I use Swift samosa pattis which are readily available in all general stores)

Method:

  • Cut the chicken breast pieces into long strips around two inch long half inch wide.
  • Wash and drain well. Squeeze with the palms of both hands to remove extra water. No water should remain in the chicken pieces.
  • Place the chicken pieces in a bowl.
  • Put salt, ginger garlic paste, chilly paste, red colour, vinegar in the bowl and mix it well.
  • Keep the bowl containing chicken pieces in refrigerator for 4 to 5 hours so that the chicken pieces get properly marinated.
  • On the other hand, take a plate and cut the samosa patties into long strip breadth wise. Thinner the strips the better will be the taste of the patties.
  • Keep the cut samosa pattis in a plate, this will be used to coat the chicken pieces.
  • After 4 to 5 hours remove the bowl from the refrigerator.
  • Add maida to the bowl and mix it well.
  • Now remove each chicken piece from the bowl and coat it with samosa pattis kept in the plate and heat sufficient oil in a wok and deep fry the chicken until crisp and golden brown.
  • After the pieces are deep fried, you can remove extra oil by placing them on tissue paper.
  • Now the crispy thread chicken is ready for serving.
  • Crispy thread chicken can be served schezwan sauce or any of the favourite sauce of choice.

Note: This recipe can be made with paneer, prawns and fish too.
