I keep trying different versions of chicken fry just so that we don't get bored no we never get bored of chicken do we!?This is a similar version to the dish we get at a caterer in our place its their signature dish except that I didn't deep fry everything.

This dish goes very well with lime rice or any everyday curry or sambar. The peanuts fried in coconut oil gives this dish an extra flavour.

Salt to taste
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Aniseeds/Sombu/Saunf  powder 1/2 tsp
