DIRECTIONS

  • Place the chicken, water, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and simmer until the chicken is tender and all the water is absorbed, less than 20 minutes.
  • If the chicken cooks before the water dries up, uncover the pan and cook until the chicken is completely dry.
  • Let cool, remove bones, and cut into smaller pieces.
  • Meanwhile, sift chickpea flour into a medium bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon salt and baking soda, and mix well. Add water until smooth and medium consistency.
  • Add the cilantro, coriander, cumin, red pepper flakes, and ajwain seeds.
  • Add the chicken to the batter, making sure each piece is evenly coated. Heat the oil to about 350-375 degrees in a skillet.
  • Using tongs, tap the excess batter off each piece and gently place in the oil one piece at a time. Add as many pieces as the skillet can hold without crowding.
  • Fry each batch, turning a few times with a slotted spoon, until crispy and golden on all sides: 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat the process with the remaining pieces.
  • Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with the roasted cumin and chaat masala.
