Chilli Chicken Recipe indian style|non-veg appetizer|chilli chicken recipe – step by step recipe with pictures.

It is very popular appetizer or you can say it is the most preferred appetizer in the Indo-chinese restaurant. chilli chicken is basically frying the chicken and then tossing the crispy chicken in sauce. this dish is very simple to make and can be made as evening snacks.

Usually restaurant use MSG (monosodium glutamate) and food colour to prepare this dish, as it has major side effect to health that’s why I have not used this in the recipe.

But trust me, you will get same taste of restaurant.when cooking such dishes in home, why to add artificial food colour or msg, just that it look good or have some Chinese flavour in it.try making it with natural ingredients at home.

I love to prepare snacks, mostly on weekend as its my off from college. I will try sharing more and more snacks recipe with you guys. hope you guys will give it a go and share your feedback with me.
