Dry roast the cumin, fennel and coriander together and then grind with the drained chillies.
Mix the ground spices with ginger, lemon juice and salt in a bowl.
Chop chicken into bite size pieces.
Add chicken to bowl and mix with the marinade thoroughly.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Heat oil in steep sided pan or wok. You¦ll need at least 1 inch of oil in bottom of the pan.
Fry chicken pieces (covered in marinade) a few at a time, do not overcrowd. Chicken should take only a few minutes to cook and will be dark golden brown on outside, white and juicy on the inside.
Allow each batch to drain on kitchen paper and allow oil to re-heat before next batch.
You can keep chicken warm in a low oven until all is ready.
Garnish with lemon wedges.
