Chicken Nuggets

Chicken Nuggets are bland crispy boneless pieces of chicken deep fried with a coating of egg white and bread crumbs. Children love these at fast food chains mostly and these are also available in frozen packets ready to fry. But we at Garam Tawa believe in the adage 'Nothing like home made'!
Yes. You can prepare this at home better than they make in those fast food restaurants and you can also be sure about the purity of spices and oil that you use, while avoiding artificial taste makers like MSG.

This is an amazing recipe Meena saw on Zee Kannada Channel in a program called 'Oggarane Dabbi' made by a 7th standard boy! My nephew was expected for dinner yesterday but he didn't turn up, so we both had a feast of chicken nuggets along with other goodies for dinner.

We have modified the recipe a bit to add up spice and to suit our taste. You may make this exactly the way we did, as it turned out fantastic and perfect!

Boneless Broiler Chicken - 500Gms, cut into 1" cubes
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup
Salt - To taste
Red Chilli powder - 2+1 Tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 Tsp
Garlic paste - 1 Tsp
Mixed Herbs/Oregano - 1 Tsp
Green chilli - 1 Minced(optional)
Coriander leaves - A handful chopped
Refined Flour(Maida) - 2 Tbsp
Egg - 1
Bread Crumbs - QS
Refined Vegetable Oil - For deep frying

Marinate the chicken pieces with buttermilk, salt, pepper, mixed herbs or oregano and 2 Tsp red chilli powder for at least 2 hours.
If too watery, squeeze out the pieces lightly and transfer to a bowl after marination.
Add optional minced green chilli, chopped coriander leaves and check for salt. 
Mix in the remaining chilli powder with maida.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed wok/kadai and reduce the flame to medium as soon as the oil starts fuming.
Beat egg, roll the marinated chicken pieces in maida mixture, dip in egg white, coat with bread crumbs and deep fry on medium heat till crisp and golden.
Drain on kitchen paper and serve with any sauce/dip of your choice.
