Jay said...

Hy Chitty BOy & Me,
thanks for stopping by..
since onion & garlic pwd are one of the prime ingredients of this recipe to enhance taste & crispness, we cant substitute any other ingredient for this. In addition to this, we can add crushed oats to flour mixture giv a try ..:)

Javelin Warrior said...

This looks delicious Jay and I love fried chicken - just made some recently for the first time. Did you add anything to the flour besides spices to give it more texture? It looks like there's some sort of crumb on the outside a little like Panko crumbs. Anyway, looks wonderfully crispy...

That looks finger licking good indeed!

Anu said...

Simply perfect..:)yummy yummy

the food dude said...

Nancy said...

Thank you for sharing this Jay! Can't wait to try it!

I have always wondered how the chicken pieces can become so crispy and now after seeing your post, I am sure I can do it on my own, esp the step by step sharing.

Looks so wonderful and sinful with the skin on but who cares when its so delicious and its ok to be sinful once a while.

Lizy said...

looks absolutely mouthwatering..great effort in taking all the pictures..

simran said...

awesome!!!!!!!!!!!kfc better watch out!yum!

Honey said...

This looks delicious. My husband LOVES KFC, and we both love Nathan's. Looks so good. I give you so much credit for making chicken at home, I'll eat it, but I'm weird about handling it at home.

Fried chicken at home is always healthier if you use the right kind of oil. This recipe doesn't look greasy at all. I just could eat a plate of it right now and it's not even 10 am. Great job and lovely post!

Reshmi Mahesh said...

Superb...Looks very tempting..

Artù said...'s very very delicius!!!

OMG, Jay, I'm salivating now! I've just booked marked a fried chicken recipe in the morning & is planning to take action in the next 2 weeks & now I saw your version of the fried chicken! Generally, the types of the seasonings are very much similar to the ones that I'm planning to make & I bought a small container of curry powder back this afternoon & also planning to add in some smoked paprika, because I have it in my kitchen, why not using it? Let me study your recipe again & come out with my version. Thanks for sharing this!

By the way, the skin of the chicken looks so crispy! I'm surprised that you don't need breadcrumbs in making this dish! Yum!

mui mui said...

Hi Jay,

Thanks dearies for spending your time with me & sharing your wonderful thoughts..:)
Do giv this recipe a try & lemme know how u enjoyed.

Jay said...

Hy Javelin warrior, Jessie ,
I haven't used bread or pranko crumbs for coating..
you can add crushed oats crumbs in the spice flour for extra crispness..!

It looks like a good fried chicken recipe. I'll be trying this out!
