In Ramadan this year (2012) my husband brought chicken pakoras from Islamabad’s famous bakery Tehzeeb. They were no doubt very tasty but very oily. I can’t eat full of oil things , so i decided to make these at home , batter recipe i took from” dal sabzi cooking show” ,in which chef used this batter for pakora frying . Chicken marinade i experimented myself …the end result was so close to original .

chicken boneless     1  cup
chilli sauce   2 tsp
crushed red chilli   1 tsp
Chinese salt   1/2 tsp

Marinate chicken with above ingredients.

basan   1/2 cup
rice powder  2 tbsp
corn flour  1 tbsp
red chilli powder   1tsp
crushed red chilli   1/2 tsp
soda  1/4 tsp
kasuri methi  1/2 tsp

In a bowl add all ingredients and mix with water, make thick paste. Should not be runny,then dip marinated chicken in it and deep fry on medium flame ,not on high flame otherwise chicken will not cook properly…. Serve with ketchup or any dip.
