RR Style Chilly Chicken

Back home in Bangalore one of the most popular cuisines is the Andhra-styled cuisine. There are tons and tons of Andhra style hotels through out Bangalore.... My firm belief is like any other style this is also highly influenced by the local culinary tradition. For hard core non-vegetarians, Andhra style means spicy chicken and mutton dishes. My husband's favorite joint happened to be a very popular hotel called RR somewhere near Church Street Bangalore..I myself have never been there. Nor have i ever tasted its famous chicken. But i was able to reproduce my own version of the dish based on my husband's inputs.. The wonderful taste-master he is, i was able to reproduce it pretty close...(that's what his verdict was!!!!)



Chicken (boneless thigh 1 to 2'' cubes) 1 lb
Green chillies 10
Long hot peppers 5
coriander leaves 1/2 cup
mint 2 tablespoon (chopped)
Garlic 4 small cloves
Ginger 1/2 '' piece
Clove 5-6
Cinnamon 1/2''
lemon juice
pepper 1/2 tablespoon
Oil for deep frying
Method
  • Combine lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss the chicken cubes in the lemon juice marinade and sit it for at least 30 minutes. Pat it dry. Deep fry the cubes in hot oil till golden brown.
  • Grind coriander, mint, ginger, garlic, cloves and cinnamon to a smooth paste.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan. Drop the slit long hot peppers and saute for a minute. When the spluttering stops add the ground spices. Keep stirring once in a while for 7 minutes.
  • Drop the fried chicken pieces and simmer for 30 minutes till well done and gravy is just thick enough to coat the chicken.

hi
most people hav got andhra chili chicken blore style wrong. its just Chinese chili chicken fast food style hijacked with extra chillies and oil. the chicken is never deep fried. soy sauce mabe omitted and a bit of cornstarch is added as well as SMG. broiler chicken is boiled and premarinated. thats how these andra restaurants cook them in a jiffy when required. these dishes are not even prepared in andhra.
just FYI. your effort seems nicer.
