I had a few unexpected guests for lunch over the weekend and had absolutely no time to go grocery shopping.

I looked into the freezer since I always stock fresh chicken......and lo...I made up my mind for the chicken 65.

This recipe goes back to my grandmom who made this dish quite different from any other 65's.This is juicy,crisp and not very dry as it has a beautiful masala which coats all the pieces.

So,do try out this recipe and u wil be amazed with the results as this dish can never go wrong.

Chicken pieces-1kg
Ginger garlic paste-3tsp
Red chilli powder-4tsp
Corriander powder-2tsp
Garam masala-1/4tsp
Lemon juice -1 lemon
Coconut paste-1/2cup
Red food colour-optional
Salt to taste.


Add all the ingredients to the chicken except the coconut and marinate for an hour.
Add half a cup of water to this and cook it in a pot on medium flame with a lid closed for about 15mins.
Once the pieces are cooked remove the pieces with a perforated spoon onto a plate.
To the remianing juices left in the pot,add the coconut paste and stir on high flame till it reaches to a thick paste.Switch off stove.
Heat oil in a kadai and shallow fry the chicken pieces until they are golden brown.Remove them on a paper napkin.
Remove oil from the kadai leaving only 2 tbsp oil in it.
To this oil in the kadai,add the paste which was made from coconut and the chicken juices.
Fry till it is nice an crisp.
Add the chicken pieces now and stir.
Garnish with corriander leaves

The chicken goes very well with roti,biryani,pulav or can be eaten by itself.
