Method

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces.
  2. Prepare the tenderizer solution by mixing the thick curd, water and salt. Immerse the chicken breast pieces in the solution overnight or at least for 2 hours. Place it in the refrigerator during this period.
  3. When done, remove the chicken pieces and drain them completely. Add half of the salt, pepper powder and garam masala into the chicken pieces and mix it thoroughly. This step is done to ensure that the chicken is tender and does not become stringy when fried.
  4. In a bowl, take plain flour. Add the rest of the salt, pepper powder and garam masala and mix well.
  5. Take a bowl and add the drained chicken pieces in to it. Add the rest of the pepper powder and salt to it. Also, add the garam masala. Mix the content in the bowl thoroughly.
  6. Take another bowl. Break the egg into it. Beat the egg well until a little frothy.
  7. Take a third bowl and add the bread crumbs into it.
  8. Take a piece of the chicken breast and roll it well in the flour mixture until well covered.
  9. Now, dip the chicken pieces in the beaten egg mixture.
  10. Place the egg coated piece in the bread crumbs. Roll well until covered completely.
  11. Repeat this process until all the chicken pieces are covered in bread crumbs.
  12. Rest this for a few minutes. This will ensure that the bread crumbs stick well to the chicken pieces.
  13. Now, take a piece and gently shake it to remove any extra bread crumbs.
  14. Slowly drop the chicken piece into a kadhai with medium hot oil. If the oil is too hot, the outside of the nugget will turn brown before the insides get cooked properly.
  15. Drop five more pieces into the kadhai and fry until golden brown.
  16. Remove the chicken nuggets on a kitchen paper.
  17. Repeat the process until all the chicken nuggets are made.
  18. Serve hot along with the other Iftar dishes or with ketchup and a hot cup of chai.
