Chicken 65 being one of the most common food among Indians, that can be prepared in minutes but only the masala matters here. Chicken 65 is can be consumed any time may be as a starter, side dish or a tea time snack. Also, chicken 65 goes out well with variety rice, meals may be a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian and also with parotta salna for dinner, I to have this combo which is deadly – Parotta, Salna and Chicken 65 served with thinly sliced onions.

Usually most of use store bought masalas, which has food color and preservative, this resulted me in preparing the masala at homemade with one more benefit as it has no ginger-garlic, you can also flavor them with vegetables or paneer.

I have already shared Chicken 65 Masala recipe, which has no ginger-garlic, no added color and no preservative. Hence this masala can be used in times of vrat to fry vegetables like plantain, gobi as gobi 65, paneer as paneer 65.
