    alligirl's Note:

    Taken from indiacurry. com and posted for ZWT. I found this recipe intriguing and with all the variations, there should be a version here for everyone to try. Different methods listed in instructions. Marinade time not included. "Battered deep fried spicy hot chicken dish used as snack or main meal pungency from cayenne ginger mustard and vinegar. Chicken 65 has become one of the popular offerings in the full service restaurant. No one really knows the origin of the name. It is believed that someone tried to cook a whole chicken in a pot with 65 dried red chili peppers to make it hot, and then adjusted the spices by adding lime juice to make it more palatable. The dish has been modified to compete against American 'Buffalo wings'. The basic pungency in the dish is derived from ginger, cayenne pepper, mustard powder and the vinegar. The dish can be served as a main entree and made from chicken breast, or as an appetizer. You can make chicken 65 many ways.."

      Packed with flavor, and has a sharp hot spiciness. It was delicious going down. I did the curry chicken option, but at the end, I removed the cooked chicken to the oven to stay warm while I reduced the liquid from watery to somewhat thick. TG our digestive systems accepted this much spice without repercussions. We each had seconds. Made for The Wild Bunch of ZWT8 for its trip to India.
