Chilli chicken is an Indo -Chinese dish paired best with fried rice or noodles but We always like to have this delicious curry with hot steamed rice or with fried rice. This recipe is a favourite for my kids and they really enjoy a lot.  This can be made both dry and wet version but I have made dry version ,mostly in restaurants they uses ajinomoto  in this dish but for healthier version I didnot used ajinomoto in my recipe.

Some uses red colour to get red colour for curry but I didn’t added any colours in my recipe .for healthier version we can also grill the chicken pieces rather than deep frying .
