Spicy chilli chicken, my husband always loved this curry in-fact I can say he is totally crazy about chilli chicken. I made it many times for him but never posted in my blog. Today I thought to write a post on how to make chilli chicken at home.

If you are already making it at your home then its good, if not then try my style today and let me know how it goes.

How to Make Chilli Chicken:


  • Cut chicken into small cube size pieces. In a bowl add salt, ginger garlic paste, corn flour, all-purpose flour, coriander powder, cumin powder, 1/2tsp soya sauce and food colour. Now mix it well with little water. Do not make it too runny, make it a thick kind of paste. Let it sit for an hour
  • In a kadai add enough oil for frying those chickens. Once oil becomes hot add those chicken pieces and fry them till golden brown.
  • Now in another pan add 2tbsp oil, once oil becomes hot add chopped garlic and fry for few seconds.
  • Add onion and capsicum to it and fry it 1-2 minutes. Do not fry those onion and capsicum too much.
  • Add rest of soya, tomato, chilli sauce, ajinomoto, salt to it and mix well.
  • Add those fried chicken to it and give it a quick mix. If you want little gravy then mix a tsp of corn flour to half cup of water and add it with chicken. Let it sit in a low flame for a minute.


Now your delicious chilli chicken is ready to serve with rice, roti or paratha. I love to have it with paratha.
