Chilli Chicken 

  • This is my way of cooking Chilli Chicken    Indo Chinese style.. Don't worry if its different from restaurant version You are eating a healthy home made food...FAR better than chemical and co loured restaurant food.
  • I simply added few cilantro leaves for garnish.Its not included in Chinese dish.

1.Turmeric powder and pepper powder is my addition.If you don't like skip it.But remember lit turmeric is good for all non vegges.
2.Also Chinese dishes won't cook fully.Its semi cooked.But Here onion and green pepper i cooked fully since my family liked that.
3.You can use the same pan for frying chicken and sauting veggies.No need of adding extra oil.
