I have been longing to make these tea time snacks and I thought if winters are going on in India, then this is the best time to make them and post this recipe.
Having them as snacks with a hot cup of tea or one can have them as starters too… Some love to call it as chicken pakodi or pakoda and they are crispy from outside when eaten hot and taste the best.
South Indian regions prefer to make pakodas with chicken mainly in andhra region and in andhra style and this pakoda recipe is made all over India with many variations…
There are many chicken dry or fry recipes and here chicken is deep fried and not stir fried. This is made with boneless chicken and all the snack recipes or chicken deep fried recipes should be made with boneless.
Here I have used besan or chick pea flour as the coating to the chicken but one can also use rice flour as the coating… I have also sprinkled some curry leaves and green chillies into the oil while deep frying and they give an amazing aroma to the deep fried chicken pakodi.
Chicken Pakora is a simple recipe where it is mixed with some spices and flour and deep fried in oil, which are perfect to enjoy in a bachelor party or a gathering with friends or kitty parties or during evenings…
