Chicken 65

Cooking Time : 30 mins
Serves            : 2
Chicken 65 is a very popular starter in all Non-Veg Restaurants. It is favourite for all groups. Chicken deep fried in Oil & the addition of extra seasoning makes it rich and lip smacking. This is the very easy method to cook at home with Restaurant style.


To Marinate:
Boneless Chicken Thigh/Breast  - 250 gms
Ginger Garlic Paste                    - 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder                      - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder                       - 1/4 tsp
Pepper Powder                          - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder                           - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder                      - 1 1/2 tsp
Corn flour                                   - 1 1/2 tsp
All Purpose Flour                        - 1 tbsp
Curd                                            - 3 tsp
Salt                                              - To Taste
Red Food Color                          - a small pinch
Lemon juice                                 - 3 tsp
Egg                                               - 1 no
Oil                                                - To Fry

For Seasoning :
Oil                                        - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves                        - As Required
Cumin Seeds                         - 1/2 tsp
Green Chilli                           - 4
Onion                                    - 1/2 piece Chopped Finely
Ginger                                    - 1 inch chopped
 Garlic Pods                            - 2 no Chopped
Pepper Powder                       - 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves                    - As Required
Salt                                          - To Taste


  1. Clean the Chicken well and cut it into equal pieces. Marinate all the ingredients mentioned in "To Marinate" Section for atleast 1 hr. Split open the Green Chillies.
  2. Heat Oil in a pan and deep fry the chicken pieces till it becomes crispy. Do not crowd the vessel. Place the cooked chicken pieces in a kitchen towel to remove the excess Oil.
  3. In another pan, heat Oil for Seasoning and add Curry Leaves, Cumin Seeds, Ginger, Garlic pods and Green Chilli and saute for 30 seconds. Add Onion and fry till it becomes golden brown. Add the fried Chicken Pieces , Pepper Powder, Salt and toss well. Garnish with Coriander Leaves.

  • Marinating Chicken for Overnight gives great taste.
  • Always use freshly ground Ginger Garlic Paste.
  • Don't reuse the fried Oil for other purposes.
  • Using Red Food Color is highly Optional. You can even neglect it.
