Garlic - 6-8 cloves chopped
Green Chillies - 2 Chopped
Sugar - 1 Tsp
Onion shoot - A handful chopped

Method:
Marinate chicken in 1 tsp pepper, salt, vinegar and little soy sauce for 2-3 hrs in the fridge.
Heat oil in a kadai, dust the marinated chicken pieces with corn flour and maida mixture and deep fry till crisp and golden.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok/frying pan. Fry the garlic and green chillies, add soy sauce and sugar, then add the corn starch solution and chicken stock.
