Chilli Chicken

Hi friends, Here is the recipe for chilli chicken with step by step pictures. One of the visitor named Mrs Hema Balakrishnan, got married recently and moved to Florida asked me for the recipe with step by step images. Well, she also mentioned she is very new to the cooking. Well Hema , i would love to wish you a happy married life, and also would like to say, that i was also the same when i got married.....but now i learnt cooking is such a fun and easy task when we know what we are up to. Friends, my first recipe on spice-india was chilli chicken, but i did not start it with step by step pictures. So here i am glad to re post my first fav recipe with step by step instruction and pictures. I am really happy and glad to see people posting me and asking for recipes. Well, here is the recipe just for you..........

Ingredients :

Chicken - 500grm ( Skinless and boneless. Chop into small pieces)
Corn flour - 10 tsp
Plain flour - 10 tsp
ginger - very small ( skin out, and chop into very small pieces...because we are going to use it directly to our recipe without grinding)
Garlic - 4 piece ( Chopped into small pieces)
Onion - 1 ( Chopped into length wise)
Green chilly - 3 ( Chopped length wise)
Cornflour paste - 1/4 cup ( Add 2 tsp corn flour with 1/4 cup of water and mix well)

Salt - To taste
Food colouring - orange ( 2 pinch)
Oil - To fry

* Then heat oil in a pan, and fry the chicken ( Remember - There is no need to add salt , you could marinate and fry it immedietly)
