Spicy Chicken Fry – 2


Just like that I have prepared this spicy chicken fry, it was delicious. I would say that this would be right to prepare when you have little quantity of chicken pieces. Here I have chopped the chicken into small pieces for this dish, and accompanied it with Malabar Chicken Briyani, everyone in my home loved the aroma and taste of the chicken. Let us move on to the recipe…
