"Try this Delicious Chicken 65 Recipe for Your Next Indian Restaurant Visit"

When we visit an Indian restaurant, Chicken 65 and Paneer 65 (cottage cheese) are our go-to starters. Chicken 65 is a spicy, deep-fried chicken dish that originates from Chennai, India. If you're a fan of this popular dish, I'm excited to share my crispy Chicken 65 recipe with you today.

Before I get to the recipe, I want to share some tips for preparing this tasty chicken 65. There are many ways to make chicken 65, each with its own unique twist. For instance, in Andhra-style chicken 65, yogurt is used for both marination and seasoning instead of egg. You can also omit the egg and use yogurt instead when marinating the chicken.

While you can use store-bought masala for this dish, I recommend making your own at home with ingredients commonly found in Indian kitchens. Here, I've used a restaurant-style dry chicken 65 recipe that is popular in Tamil Nadu, particularly in Madurai and Chennai. This dish can be prepared with boneless or bone-in chicken and is best served with lemon and onion slices.

To make this dish even more delicious, sprinkle some lemon juice over the fried chicken and serve with onion slices. Just be careful when frying the curry leaves, as the water content can cause the oil to splatter. Be sure to dab the leaves with a tissue before frying.

So, why not try making this delicious chicken 65 recipe at home for your next Indian restaurant-inspired meal? Don't forget to share your comments and let me know how it turns out!
