How to make KFC style fried chicken at home. Here is the secret recipe for this fried chicken dish.
Appetizer, Side Dish
buttermilk (If buttermilk not available then use 4 tbsp curd with 1/2 cup of water.
corn flakes (powdered)
oil for deep fry
ginger-garlic powder or paste
garam masala or ground all spices
paprika or Kashmiri chili powder
salt to taste
Take buttermilk or Curd in a bowl. If you use curd then add 1/2 cup water to it.
Wash the chicken pieces with water and drain off water. Dip them in buttermilk.
Keep it in a refrigerator over the night or at least 4 hours to marinate. This process makes chicken pieces soft and limp.
After the marination, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and drain buttermilk. Keep it aside.
Beat an egg and pour it in a bowl. Add ¼th cup of milk with it. Mix them well and set aside for 15 minutes.
Combine all-purpose flour, cornflour, corn flakes powder, bread crumbs, mix-herbs, and garam masala in another bowl.
Now sink the chicken pieces in the egg-milk mixture. Wet all sides of the chicken pieces with this liquid then transfer it to the flour-spices mixture to coat them.
Coat all sides with this mixture. For extra crispy and crunchy dip the chicken in the egg mixture again and stuck flour-spice mixture again.
Now let chicken pieces rest for 4-5 minutes to set the crust. Shake off all the chicken pieces to remove the extra dry crust.
Take a heavy bottom deep frying pan or kadhai and pour enough cooking oil for deep frying. Heat it over a medium flame.
Check the temperature by drop a small portion of the wet mixture in the oil. If it rises without browning then the temperature is perfect to fry.
Drop the chicken pieces one by one in the hot oil. Stir often and fry all sides evenly. Keep the flame medium and fry until they turn golden-brown.
Remove and keep on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Serve the fried chicken with your favorite sauces and salads. Now taste it after dipping in mayonnaise.
