Dried Chilli Chicken Fry

Meat and chilli have this unbreakable bond. Do you enjoy spicy food? Then rejoice! Here comes a dish that will quench your thirst.

What do you need for 4 Servings

  • 500 gms chicken

  • 20 red chilies

  • 15 shallots

  • 1 whole garlic

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • 2 tbsp Gingelly oil

  • Salt (As needed)

For Seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds

  • 1 tsp fennel seeds

  • Few curry leaves

Lets Cook

  • Wash and clean the chicken thoroughly.

  • Cut the chicken into small pieces.

  • Finely chop the onion & garlic. Break the chilies into half and discard the seeds.

  • Heat oil in a kadai then add the items under seasoning list.

  • In low flame add red chilies, saute it for half a minute. (Be cautious of the smoke from red chilies) [PIC 1]

  • Add finely chopped garlic followed by shallots and saute it for 2 mins. Next add turmeric and saute it. [PIC 2 ]

  • Add chicken pieces and saute it well with other ingredients. Now add salt and cover it with lid.

  • After 2-3 mins chicken will loose water. At this stage add half a cup of water and close the lid again. [PIC 3]

  • Cook for another 10 mins in low flame until the chicken is coated well with other ingredients.

  • When chicken attains a light red colour, it’s ready to be served. [PIC 4]


  • The chilies used in this recipe are moderately spicy therefore I used 20. You can increase or decrease the number of chilies based on its spicy level.

  • Take care not to overcook the chicken to avoid chewy and rubbery texture.
