spicy and tasty. It is not available commercially; hence comes
literally from our kitchen. Hope you like it!

Spicy Chicken Salad is ready to eat - hot or cold!


  • Cut the chicken breast fillets into medium dices. Add turmeric powder, chillie powder, cumin powder, salt, vinegar and
    mix well in a bowl.

  • Heat oil in a pan. When oil is well heated, reduce heat to medium. Gently add the chicken pieces - few at a time, allowing
    enough space to turn them over.

  • Fry them for 2 minutes. Turn them over a few times to ensure all sides are cooked. Take them off the oil when thoroughly
    cooked. Keep them on a kitchen roll to absorb excess oil.

  • Put the fried chicken in another bowl. Add chopped red onions, coriander, green chillies and mix well.

  • Prepare a plate of mixed lettuce salad. Add some tomatoes to it.

  • Add the spicy chicken pieces to the salad. Squeeze some lime juice on top. Eat either hot or cold.

Variation: Chicken Roll
Use a Roti or Paratha to make a chicken roll. Put some of the spicy fried chicken on the Roti or Paratha; add some chopped
cucumber, some mixed lettuce salad, some chillie sauce and some lime juice. Roll it up; put some foil at the bottom to hold
the roll. Your Chicken Roll is ready!
