Restaurant Style Chicken 65 / South Indian Style Chicken Fry

Crispy and Super moist South Indian style fried Chicken. A very popular appetizer / snack and possibly the most selling appetizer in South Indian restaurants. 
You need boneless chicken breast pieces cut equally in size. Chicken pieces are marinated in rice flour, APF, Corn Flour, Ginger paste, Garlic Paste, red chilli powder, salt, ground pepper , turmeric powder. You need to marinate the chicken at least an hour. Yogurt marinade helps chicken absorb all flavours and makes it juicy from inside.
