Chicken 65

Chicken 65 is spicy- deep-fried chicken from Tamilnadu. It can be made with bone or without bone. Today, am making this dish with boneless chicken. For this dish, I'm using the thigh part of the chicken which turns out to be juicy when fried.  Chicken 65 is often served as a snack or starter. If you want semi- gravy style you can also add whipped curd as required which gives a wet effect to the dish.  You are always free to adjust the amount of spices by reducing or increasing it. So let's make some Chicken 65!!

To Make This Recipe You Will Need :

Boneless Chicken ( I bought Pre-packed)
370 Grams
Pepper Powder
½ Teaspoon
To taste
Corn Flour
2 Tablespoons + 2  Tablespoons to use in the end
Crushed Garlic
1 Tablespoon
Onion (Medium sized)
 Half (finely chopped)
Green Chillies
2 ( Slit)
Curry Leaves
As required
Ginger- Garlic  paste
1 Teaspoon
Cumin Powder
½ Teaspoon
Turmeric  Powder
½ Teaspoon
Red chilli powder
½ Teaspoon
1 ½ Teaspoon
Red food color
¼ Teaspoon
6 Tablespoons(to make the cornflour slurry)
As required to deep fry the chicken

Method :

 First prepare the chicken by cutting them into bite-size pieces, cleaned and washing thoroughly.
To the chicken, add cornflour (2 Tablespoons), salt, pepper, and egg. Mix the chicken well, marinate it for at least 1 hour. Longer the marination, the better the chicken. After marinating the chicken pieces deep fry them on a medium flame for the chicken to cook well..

Next, add the required amount of oil to other kadai, followed by cumin seeds, crushed garlic, onions, ginger-garlic paste, curry leaves, green chilies, red food color, red chilli paste, cumin powder, turmeric powder. Saute the whole mixture for 1 minute and add the fried chicken pieces. Stir well. At this point, you can check for taste and can add spices according to your taste. If you feel that chicken mixture turned out spicy then simply squeeze lemon/lime juice to cut down the spiciness.. After stirring well add the cornflour slurry, cover the lid and cook it further for 3 to 4 minutes on low flame. 

*** If you want semi gravy or wet chicken 65 then add enough amount of whipped yogurt (curds) before adding the fried chicken pieces.. 

And you're done!!
