Step 1

Clean, wash and slit chicken pieces, if they are too big.

Step 2

Chop onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies.

Step 3

Grind together onions, ginger, garlic and chillies into a fine paste.

Step 4

Blend turmeric powder, lemon juice and rice flour into the masala paste along with salt.

Step 5

Apply this mixture along with shredded curry leaves onto the chicken and leave to marinate for 2 - 3 hrs in the refrigerator.

Step 6

Heat oil in a shallow pan.

Step 7

Add marinated chicken and saute for 2 mins on both sides to seal the exterior.

Step 8

Step 9

Sprinkle water, if chicken stays too dry.

Step 10

:- The last few mins of cooking should be done on high heat so that the surface of the chicken becomes crispy and golden brown.

Step 11

:- Serve hot as a side dish or with any Indian bread.
