Chilli Chicken (Dry)

Hi Friends, 
Chilly chicken is a Chinese dish of chicken that can be made with boneless chicken or with bones too. Cooked in different sauces.
You can make chilly chicken with gravy and without gravy too....Relish the dish with boiled rice.
I got this recipe when I visited Delhi .....One of our friend shared it with me....Thanks to Shweta Puri for sharing this recipe with me :-)


  • 200 gm boneless chicken (cut into cubes)
  • 1 red bell pepper (cut into cubes)
  • 1 green capsicum (cut into cubes)
  • 1 onion (cut into cubes)
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 dried red chilies (broken into bits)
  • 1/2 tsp soya sauce
  • 1/4 tsp tobacco sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  • A pinch of ajinomoto
  • 1/4 tsp pepper powder
  • Salt taste
  • 1 tbsp Maida (all purpose flour)
  • 1 tbsp bread crumbs
  • Oil for frying 


  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs and maida on the boneless chicken. Toss nicely.

  • Heat oil in the kadhai, deep fry chicken pieces till golden brown in colour. Remove from oil and keep them aside.
