Hyderabadi Chicken 65
Andhra style Chicken 65 / Hyderabadi chicken 65 recipe with step by step photos. Chicken 65 is an popular appetizer chicken recipe, that is prepared using boneless chicken with nice spices blend. Hyderabadi Chicken 65 is little different from the regular version, where the deep fried chicken is sauteed with spicy yogurt sauce. Few weeks ago I happened to watch this recipe video on you tube in telugu language by a popular restaurant's chef and impressed with it. Then I remember about the chicken 65 which we had in one of the restaurant near my place, it was really different from regular chicken 65 and the chicken pieces were nicely coated with spice powders. I thought they used to saute in spices after deep frying the chicken and tried it that way as per my guess. But the result was not good and chicken pieces turned dry and the masala did not coated with the chicken. Then after seeing that video I came to know that they use yogurt. At first I hesitated to try with yogurt, then first time tried with small amount for chicken and to my surprise it turned out good and it tasted almost same like the one we had in restaurant. Then decided to share it on my blog too. If you haven't tried chicken 65 this way, please give it a try this weekend, I am sure you will love this spicy, juicy and flavorful chicken 65.

  • Now heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a pan, when it is hot add fennel seeds, finely chopped ginger, garlic, green chilli, curry leaves and fry well.

I ground, ginger 1" wide pieces, 5 garlic cloves 2 green chillies to a smooth paste and added to the marinade.
If you want you can add red food color but I did not add any color, the red chilli, kashmiri chilli and curry powder is enough to get nice appetizing color.
I used Nirav brand red chilli powder, Kashmiri chilli powder & Garam Masala powder. Compared to other brand Nirav brand chilli powders are dark and slightly hot.
Make sure you turn the heat to low before adding yogurt to avoid split.
Also beat the yogurt well before adding.
I wanted to share that recipe video link, unfortunately that video was not available now in you tube.
