• 1 Chicken with skin, cut into 8 pieces, or 8-10 drum stick
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup basin (gram flour)
  • 1 tsp. red chilies (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tea spoon salt
  • 1 tea spoon black pepper
  • oil for deep frying


Put the chicken a large bowl, add lemon and one teaspoon of salt and rub it all over the chicken pieces. Cover and marinate for at least 3 to 4 hours or overnight in a refrigerator. Mix 1\2 teaspoon of salt and rest of the ingredients, except oil. Place the coating mixture in a plastic bag. Put one piece at a time in the bag and shake it to coat the mixture. Arrange the coated chicken pieces in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Deep fry the chicken in an electric deep fryer. Follow the manufacturer's instruction. Alternatively fry the chicken in a deep fryer over high heat. Fry to a crisp golden color. Remove from the oil and place on an absorbent kitchen paper. Serve hot with French fries and garlic chutney.
