8-10 garlic flakes

1 tbsp red chili sauce

1 tbsp tomato sauce

1 tsp vinegar

1tsp sugar

Spring onions 2-3 sprigs

Salt to taste

2-3 tbsp Oil


Cut boneless chicken into stripes or cubes as per preference. Here I have used thigh boneless. Marinate with salt, garlic paste, pepper, maida, corn flour and egg. Mix everything together and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.

Soak kashmiri red chilies and garlic in warm water for about 15 minutes. Then grind it together to make chili paste which is deep red in colour

Heat a wok. Add oil for shallow frying chicken. Alternatively this chicken can also be deep fried. On high heat shallow fry the chicken 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove the fried chicken and in the same oil add chopped garlic and saute for 30 seconds.

Now saute the red chili paste till the time it gives out garlic aroma. Add onion cubes and bell pepper and saute .

Now add some water. then add red chili sauce, soy sauce, tomato sauce and sugar. When it comes to boil, add the cornflour slurry. Then mix the fried chicken, Sauce should coat the chicken pieces and should not be too runny. Add vinegar. Thrown in some chopped spring onions and turn off the heat.

Garnish with spring onion greens. Serve with egg fried rice
