Chilli Chicken



This chicken recipe is one of my favourite which my mom used to prepare. It's also my dad's  favourite. My mom used to make these for weekends, it's just a simple indochinese style recipe.
My dad used to like these type of recipes with green pepper, mushroom or paneer. Although he is thousands of miles away from me, i'm sure he'll feel happy by seeing this post .
This recipe goes to the event I Love My Dad Event by  Tasty Appetite.
Ingredients:
Boneless chicken- 1/2 kg
Ginger Garlic Paste- 2 tsp
Chilli powder-1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
White pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala-1/4 tsp
Lemon juice- 1/2 tbsp
Soy sauce- 2 tsp
Tomato ketchup- 2 tsp
Onion-1 finely sliced
Green pepper- 1/2 chopped
Red pepper- 1/2 chopped
Yellow pepper- 1/2 chopped
Spring onion-3 chopped
Cornstarch-1 tbsp
Salt as required
Oil-2 tbsp
Method:
Wash and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Marinate the chicken in lemon juice, ginger garlic paste, chilli powder, salt and garam masala  half an hour before making. Heat the 1 tbsp of oil in a kadai or nonstick pan, add all the chicken pieces, keep the flame in medium to low. Keep stirring the chicken without sticking to the bottom, cook the chicken without covering the pan, once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan, to the same pan add the remaining oil, sliced onion and fry it till it turns lightly brown. add all the pepper and stir fry it for 2 minutes, then add all the chicken pieces, white and blackpepper powder, soy sauce and ketchup, stir well so that the chicken gets coated in the masala completely.
Finally add 1 tbsp of cornstarch and simmer till it becomes saucy, switch off the flame.
Serve the chicken warm with chappathi's or parathas. It also goes well with rice flour roti's.
