Start with making the chilli paste. Grind together soaked chillies with water to a fine paste. You can also make this by mixing chilli powder and water. Be sure the chilli you use has a bright colour but is very less on spiciness.


To marinate the chicken, make sure it is dry. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, baking soda, flour, corn starch and an egg. Mix them together and keep aside for 10mins. Heat oil in the meantime and deep fry the chicken till it turn light brown. Remove and keep aside.


For the sauce heat a pan, drizzle oil, dry red chilli, garlic and ginger. Stir and add green chillies, onions, and capsicum. Toss all veggies on high heat for 2 mins. 


Pour soya sauce, tomato ketchup, vinegar, salt, chilli paste and stir it for 30 seconds. Add in the chicken and toss them together. Pour water and bring it to a boil. Separately mix together corn starch with a dash of water and add it to the boiling sauce. Once it thickens remove from heat, add spring onions and serve it hot.


If you wish to make chilli chicken dry then dry up the sauce, if you wish to eat it with sauce then keep the sauce with the chicken.
