How to make restaurant style chilli chicken | chilli chicken | Chilli chicken dry

After a long Eid break and celebrating my first blogoversary ,this is the first recipe of the second year of blogging .This eid kids enjoyed a long break from school almost 7 days!!! including weekend .The remaining 2 days of the week I had to lend my aching body some ME TIME .That was a much needed one after the eid gatherings, picnics ,trips to amusement parks ...etc.

Coming to today's post .....after Indian food any thing that my family enjoys is Chinese cuisine .The spicy, tangy ,salty taste of Chinese cuisine always impresses Indian taste buds .The best part of  making Chilli chicken at home is it is low on budget and high on taste,can be made in a jiffy,light on stomach .Make your sunday sunday dinner special with chilli chicken.

Here's the way I made it ......


To marinate

  • 400 gms chicken (boneless)
  • 2 tbsp corn starch 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soya sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
  • salt as needed

  • oil for deep frying

For tempering

  • 4 cloves of garlic( big)
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1/2 cup capsicum
  • 2 onions (medium size)
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup 
  • 1 tbsp chilly sauce 
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce 
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  •  salt to taste 
  •  1 tbsp corn starch +3 tbsp water


  • Cut the chicken in cubes and marinade with the spices listed under "to  marinate"

  • Chop the veggies in the shape as shown in the above pic.
  • Allow the chicken to marinate for 30 mints .
  • Heat oil in a wok or kadhai ,and on medium heat fry the marinated chicken pieces.
  • Take care not to over fry them as they turn to become hard.Drain the chicken pieces on a tissue paper .

  • To a pan add oil  and saute the garlic and green chillies followed by capsicum and onions.
  • We don't want the onions to become soggy so don't saute them long .
  • Just when the onions turn white add the chicken and saute for a minute.

  • In a bowl mix all the sauces , vinegar and add to the chicken .
  • Stir the chicken and sauces until they are mixed well .
  • Make a slurry of the corn starch and add to chicken .Adjust salt accordingly .

    • Allow the mixture to dry and gets well coated to the chicken.
    • Serve hot  immediately .
