We do welcome indulgent meal on weekend with family/friends after five days of busy weekdays anybody would crave for fulfilling lunch/dinner. Make this perfect fulfilling meal at your ease in your kitchen and get loads of appreciation serving it to family and guests while you enjoy with them, leaves them craving for more!
     Today's lunch menu had Biriyani, Steamed white rice that is slow cooked, gently simmered with aromatic Indian spices and herbs accompanied by a spicy, hot and sour crunchy chicken. Here I post the recipe of Chili chicken. I already have a post on chili chicken. But this really inspired me, when I first had it in a party. It’s full of flavours and heat coming from chilies is a real treat to your taste buds to uplift rest of your day.


2 chicken breast pieces/boneless chicken, cut into cubes
4-5 tbsp oil
2 Dry red chillies
½ green bell pepper, cubed
2 green chillies, halved
1 medium onion, cubed
2 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
¾ tbsp corn flour
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp chili sauce
Spring onions to garnish
Salt to taste

For marinating
1 tsp black pepper powder
2 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp Salt


 Step 1: Wash and pat dry chicken pieces. Marinate chicken with ingredients listed under marinating.   Let stand for 15 minutes.

Step 2: Roughly chop green chilies, break dry chilies into pieces and keep aside. Chop spring onion greens. Mix corn flour with half a cup of water and keep aside.

Step 3: Heat 4 tbsp oil in a non stick frying pan, fry marinated chicken in medium low heat. Flip over to cook pieces evenly from both sides and transfer chicken pieces to plate. Simmer the same pan, add dry chilies, sauté, add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw aroma vanish. Add bell peppers, green chilies, fry for two minutes in medium low heat.

Step 4: Add soya sauce, corn flour mix, salt and stir until gravy thickens. Add fried chicken, chili sauce and toss well to coat them evenly. Garnish with spring onions.

  • As I always say adjust spices according to your taste.
  • Give finishing touch with pinch of pepper powder if you are a spice lover. 
  • You can add oil while reheating pan if required.
