Chicken 65 is one famous non vegetarian dish every nonveg lover must have tasted atleast once from that menu card in a restaurant.Ever wondered why its called so?I just looked up the internet and found that the very famous food pioneer A.M Buhari who is the founder of the Buhari chain of hotels in Chennai, India was the one who introduced this dish to the world and it was in 1965 which is why the name Chicken 65.Check here for more details.
I never tried making this dish before wonder why never felt so.But once i did i thought I must try a fried dish like so each weekend or atleast whenever i can.
