Basil powder – 1/4tsp

Paprika powder – ½ tsp

Oregano dried – ¼ tsp

Ginger powder – ½ tsp

Clove powder – ¼ tsp

Cinnamon powder – ¼ tsp

Garlic powder – ½ tsp

Oil – for frying

Chilli mayo

Mayonnaise – 1 cup

Tabasco – 2tsp

Tomato ketchup – ¼ cup


Cut chicken breast into thick strips. Marinate with salt and pepper and keep aside.

Prepare the 3 coatings/marinations separately by mixing them together in individual bowls. Marination 1 & 3 are dry coatings and marination 2 is wet coating. For marination 2 the consistency of the batter should be thick and pouring like a pancake batter. Made sure you add chilled soda to it. Add the soda just before adding the chicken to it.

Dunk the chicken in marination 1 and coat it completely. Now dip it in second margination, do not wipe the excess marinade off the chicken and immediately dunk into 3rd margination. Make sure to tightly press the chicken when it is in third marination on to the chicken.

Now deep fry the chicken in hot oil. Remove and serve hot.

For the dip combine mayonnaise, tomato ketchup and chilli sauce. Serve with the chicken.
