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.
