Sweet and Spicy Chicken Fry



  • Chicken – 600gm
  • Kashmiri chili powder- 2tsp
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4tsp
  • Green chillies- 2-3 roughly chopped
  • Curry leaves- 1 sprig
  • Tomato ketchup- 4-5 tbsp
  • Sweet chili sauce- 1tbsp
  • Soy sauce- 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar- a pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for shallow frying
  • Butter- 2 tbsp



  • Marinate the chicken pieces in chili powder, turmeric powder and salt. Keep it aside for half an hour.
  • Shallow fry these chicken pieces till cooked well and slightly charred on the outside.
  • Melt butter in a non-stick pan. Add a tsp of the oil in which you fried the chicken, if any left.
  • Splutter the curry leaves and then add green chillies. To that add tomato ketchup and sweet chili sauce. Sauté for about 4-5 mins. The sauce should become slightly thick.
  • To this add soy sauce and sugar. Sauté again.
  • Then add the fried chicken pieces to this mixture and mix well till the sauce is coated well all over the chicken.
  • Serve immediately.


✔️Chicken should be fried to perfection, which means chicken shouldn’t be too dry. You can fry the chicken ahead of time but mix it in the sauce just before serving.
