Popcorn chicken

I tasted the Popcorn chicken, after coming to Singapore only. At the first taste itself, i liked it a lot. That time, I never thought, we can prepare these crunchy, munchy, tasty popcorn chicken at home. Thanks to the blogger world. This recipe, I followed the instructions from Vah reh vah and the outcome is simple awesome. Everyone in our family loved it a lot.


For Marination
  • Chicken - 1/2 kg (boneless)
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tsp
For coating
  • Egg - 1
  • All purpose flour/maida - 3 tsp
  • Rice flour - 2 tsp (corn flour can also be used)
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Oil - for frying

  • Cut Chicken into small pieces like 1 inch cubes.
  • Add Chilli powder, pepper powder, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, little oil and mix thoroughly and marinate for 2 hrs or 1 hr in freezer.
  • Now in a bowl or plate, mix the maida, rice flour, salt and chilli powder.
  • Break one egg and keep it in a bowl. 
  • Now take one piece of chicken and roll them in the flour mixture and let the flour get coated nicely.
  • Now dip the coated chicken cubes, in the egg.
  • Again coat the dipped chicken cubes with the flour mixture. 
  • Now the chicken cubes are doubled coated with the flour mixture.
  • Remove the excess flour coating by just sifting it in a filter.
  • Heat the oil in medium flame and when it is hot, add the coated chicken pieces one by one. Fry them in batches.
  • Remove from oil, then they turn light brown colour. 
  • Filter the excess oil, in a kitchen towel.
  • Crispy popcorn chicken is ready to eat.

Its popping out with flavors. Popped in the mouth as soon as they come out from the work will be so good, that which is so obvious as shown in your beautiful visuals. Consider it finger food, sides or appetizer, its perfectly prepared for a popping burst. Yum all the way.
