Spicy Chicken Fry / Quick Chicken Fry using Freshly Ground Spices

Hi all, hope u enjoyed your weekend and wishing u a very pleasant n successful week ahead. This week have planned to cook and bake few recipes since for the past 10 days becoz of the weather(gloomy & cloudy) i did not make anything for my blog baby. This week comparatively going to be better than the past days, so decided to cook/bake few recipes. Wish me good luck buddies :)
Now coming to the recipe, this is my recent experiment, so simple and quick chicken fry with freshly ground spices, no need of ready made masalas. For a change tried this with ground spices which turned out so good and liked by my family memebes. This not like Chettinad chicken which is also made using freshly roasted n ground spices and its a lengthy process too, its a very simple n quick fry. Best accompaniment with rice n rasam. Do give it a try n let me know h it turned out to u.

  1. Boneless chicken 250gm
  2. Onion 1 medium(finely chopped)
  3. Tomato 1 small(finely chopped)
  4. Ginger Garlic paste      2 tsp
  5. Turmeric powder        1/4 tsp
  6. Fennel seeds       1/2 tsp
  7. Garam masala powder      1/4 tsp or less.
  8. Salt               To taste
  9. Cilantro               2-3 tbsp(finely chopped)
  10. Curry leaves        1-2 sprig
  11. Pepper corns        2 tsp(coarsely ground)
To dry roast & grind
  1. Dry red chilli        3 no.s
  2. Coriander seeds     1 tbsp


  1. Cut chicken into small pieces, then wash thoroughly drain excess water and add turmeric powder, mix well and keep aside covered.
  2. Heat a pan, dry roast chili n coriander seeds then grind it coarsely(see pic 3) and keep aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, add fennel seeds wait till it splutter then add onions, curry leaves and saute till it turns light golden brown.
  4. Now add ginger garlic paste and stir fry till raw smell leaves.
  5. Then add chopped tomatoes and saute till it turns soft n mushy.
  6. After that add freshly ground chilli n coriander seeds and stir fry for a minute.
  7. Then add chicken and stir fry for 3-4 minutes and cook covered till chicken gets cooked well.
  8. Lastly add freshly ground pepper, garam masala and stir fry in high heat for 2 minutes, so that the moisture from the chicken drains well n turn as dry chicken fry. Take care not to burn it.
  9. That's it...spicy chicken fry ready, garnish with cilantro and serve hot as a side dish.
I added a generous pinch of garam masala for extra flavor only, its optional n if u want u can replace with chicken masala powder.
Adding tomato is also optional, u can omit it if u want a dry chicken fry.
In case, instead of tomato marinate the chicken with 1 tbsp fresh thick yogurt along with turmeric powder.
