Hot Garlic Chicken | Indo Chinese Chicken In Hot Garlic Sauce

Hot Garlic Chicken for any day of the week! I do believe with all my heart that Indo-Chinese cuisine is one of the best fusion cuisines ever created!!! My family loves – good Indo Chinese any day of the week! You all have your favorites, When it comes to fried rice or noodles, we all have a particular side dish that we always order along with that, now don’t we? This one is totally like the ones they serve at your favorite restaurant. Try this Hot Garlic Chicken and let me know. It’s hot but not numbingly so. My 9 year old loves it! The chicken is  batter fried and then cooked along with this sauce that mostly tastes of garlic, chilli paste and tomato sauce..spicy, sour, ever so slightly sweet all in perfect balance.

  • Pour the batter over the chicken and set aside, while you chop and prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • Heat the oil for frying in a wok and fry in small batches till light golden in color. 2-3 minutes should do, to keep the chicken amazingly tender.
  • Remove the chicken from the oil and set aside.
  • Add 3- 4 Tbsp of the same oil used for frying the chicken to a non stick  or seasoned wok.
