Ginger Chicken

Ginger Chicken

Ginger Chicken is a classic semi gravy dish that goes well with rotis and pathiris. In this recipe, the marinade don't have cornflour or maida so the chicken will be without any coating in the curry. In case you want the chicken to have a coating, then you can add 4 tablespoons of Cornflour and 3 tablespoons of Maida in the marinade. In this case, instead of just cooking the chicken, you will have to deep fry the chicken in a kadai and then do the other steps as noted below.
