DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients from maida to salt. Add a few extra drops of water if the batter is very thick.
  2. Add the chicken pieces and mix to coat well. Let it marinate, covered, in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Just before frying add rice powder.
  3. Heat oil on high heat, in a deep vessel. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the chicken pieces, a few pieces at a time.
  4. Fry for 3-4 mins turning the pieces occasionally. If you fry it further, the colour of the coating will change from red to brown, if you used food colour.
  5. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with a few lime wedges & onions rings.
  • NOTES:
    When frying do not reduce the heat to very low because the chicken coating will get soggy at the same time frying in very high heat will give you partially uncooked chicken which you wouldn’t want.

  1. Is there anyone out here WHO hasn’t tasted the Empire Restaurant’s (Bangalore) Chicken Kababs? i am certain there ar lots and every one I will tell them is ‘ you’re very missing out on some smart stuff!’. This was my most ordered, favorite item of theirs.I might eat the maximum amount as they might provide American state however they ne’er gave over five or half-dozen items and since we tend to were in our school days, we wanted our hard cash for over simply kababs

  2. Hi Sadia,
    Thanks for the wonderful share. I have always loved the fried chicken and i was in the hunt for this kind of recipe and Voila!!..I got it..I have made fried kebabs twice now once for family and next time for friends and it has turned out absolutely brilliant and heavenly tasty.Thanks a Ton!!!

  3. Hi Sadia,
    This turned to be the best dish i have tried out of a recipe. Extremely thankful to you for helping us make better dishes such as these. The coating and texture on the chicken was precisely optimum and made mouths water just by the look of it. I was on the look out for our very own Empire style kababs and the search ended here. You have presented the recipes really well on your blog and overall look and feel of the entire layout of your blog is very pleasant and sets the mood to cook an equally pleasant dish. All the best ! ! !

  4. Hello! Happy to know that you liked the recipe.
    Its usual that the chicken bleeds when you fry them. But you can do some prep work on the chicken before frying them.
    1. Just soak the cleaned chicken in water along with lots of ice for 30 mins before frying.
    2. You can brine the chicken, that is soak the chicken in salt water for 5-6 hours or over night. This is a great method because along with removing the blood from the chicken, you will get nice moist, succulent and tender chicken after frying them.
    3. You can precook the chicken on low heat for 5 minutes and then do the coating and deep fry.
    Hope these tips will be useful for you.
