Dry Chili Chicken Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

The fact that the Chinese we relish in India is nowhere close of authentic Chinese but an Indo-Chinese fare is no stranger to us. The indianised Chinese food was born in present-day Kolkata, when many immigrants from China and Tibet settled there. The Chinese flavours were taken for a toss and the spicy elements were added to it. Nelson Wang is one of the pioneers in revolutionising and bringing Chinese fare closer to us. Today, most ogf the dishes we eat in the name of Chinese like manchurian, chilli potato and chilli chicken are actually Indo-Chinese creations. Chilli chicken is a spicy Indo-Chinese snack that is crunchy, crispy and filled with amazing spices. The chicken pieces are deep-fried before being dunked into lots of sauce-covered vegetables like bell peppers, spring onions etc. The chilli chicken comes in both dry and gravy varieties, serving as a starter and a main course dish respectively.
