Must Try This Crispy Chicken Pakora


ingredients of crispy fried chicken
  • Chicken: You can use the chicken breast, thighs, or any other chicken part. 
  • Marination: For marination, you need soy sauce, red chili sauce, garlic powder, buttermilk, black pepper, red chili flakes, dry fenugreek and salt. 
  • Coating: I’m using ground flour, corn flour, red chili flakes, salt, chicken masala, black pepper, red chili flakes and garlic powder for the marination.


  1. Marination: Let’s begin with marination. First, take a mixing bowl and add the soy sauce, red chili sauce, red chili flakes, dry fenugreek, garlic powder, salt, buttermilk, vinegar, and black pepper perfectly with the medley.

Before dipping the chicken in this seasoning, apply deep cuts in the chicken so that the spices can soak in properly.
  1. Dipping: Now dip each piece of chicken in the seasoning and perfectly mix it with your hands. Next, store this mixing bowl in your refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes.

  1. Coating: Meanwhile, let’s make the coating. Simply add 2 cups of all-purpose flour in a bowl, toss corn flour (you can also use baking soda), red chili flakes, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and chicken masala (store-bought). If you don’t have chicken masala, feel free to skip it.
  1. Coating: After 30 Minutes, remove the seasoning bowl from the refrigerator and coat the chicken pieces. After applying one coat, apply the water over the chicken pieces. I’ve slightly soaked it in a bowl full of water and dredged it again. Apply a thick coat over the chicken to make it crisper this time.

  1. Frying: Heat the oil in a pan and fry the chicken. Keep the heat medium to get the best results. And keep flipping the pieces over time to avoid overly dark colors.

Pro Tips:

  • Don’t forget the garlic powder, which adds a deeper, robust, and aromatic flavor. 
  • Add a tablespoon of ketchup to the seasoning for a sweet and savory flavor. 
  • While dredging/coating, also keep a bowl of water on a table. After applying the first coat, soak the chicken in water and then apply a second coat. The water adds cohesiveness, and the second coat will get thicker easily, making the chicken super crispy.

The second big variation in the crispy fried chicken recipe is breadcrumbs. You can use any kind of breadcrumbs to make the chicken crispy.

So, if you have breadcrumbs in your pantry, you can skip the homemade coating process. Simply whisk an egg, apply it to a chicken and coat it with breadcrumbs. Or you can also apply the extra coat of breadcrumbs after dredging in flour. 

With breadcrumbs, you can also bake the chicken instead of frying, which is a plus point for those who dislike oily stuff. 


You can serve crispy fried chicken with spicy ketchup and mint chutney or use tangy dips with this overpowering recipe. If you have used boneless chicken, warp this crispy chicken in a sandwich, burger, or roll. You can also savor this meal with creamy cucumber or classic pasta salad.
