Chicken 65

Chicken 65 is one of the must haves in Non-vegetarian items.. My Hubby could finish even 3lbs of chicken 65 at a stretch.... Big appetite huh... But it tastes so good and u will never know how much u ate!!! Kids will Love'em!!! Its a great party food...


1lbs Boneless Chicken cut into small pieces

1/4 cup yogurt

1 egg

1 tbsp rechilli powder

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp ginger garlic paste

1 tbsp Garam Masala or 2 tbsp Shakthi Chicken 65 powder

Salt to taste

Oil for deep frying

Marinate chicken with above ingredients... except oil.. we all know ... Egg is used to bind all the ingredients to chicken. Sometimes while deep frying the mixture will be separated from chicken and doesn't taste good. I usually use chicken 65 powder to enhance the flavour. If u don't find it u can skip it .. no worries.. Cover the marinated chicken with thin foil and store in the refrigerator for 3 hours (minimum). Remove from refrigerator 15 mts before frying. U Will see water over the chicken which u can filter it or squeeze out of the chicken.

Heat oil for deep frying. Once the oil is hot (not pipping hot) add the chicken pieces and fry for 15 mts. This is the tricky part... Chicken usually takes 10 - 15 mts to cook. If u over cook it, will be hard. U have to take when its slightly soft but cooked perfectly. U get this by practice. If u press the chicken it will be soft and u cut it u can see white color throughout which indicates perfectly cooked chicken.The chicken turns to golden brown.. Remove from oil.

Serve hot with piece of Lime and onion!!!



Do u add Food color? Coz I never get this color...

Hi Ashwini,
First time in your blog, you've got nice recipes here especially the non-veg items (everything is tempting)..
The chicken 65 looks delicious, will defintely try this one of these days!


Hi Lakshmi
I dont add food color. I think sakthi masala chicken65 powder itself has color in it..


Thanks Akal...


I think it's spicy. Nice posts. I can taste it better than the restaurant.
