Murmura chicken ( A Crispy Chicken Snack)

This is a quick chicken dish which I made for my son. It tastes more like a chicken snack than a main dish. It could be eaten on its own or with rice and curry. Great as an appetizer or side dish.  


Ingredients:
Chicken breast pieces - 1lb
Ginger garlic paste - 1 heaped tsp.
Red Chilli powder - 1 heaped tsp.
Turmeric - 1/2 a tsp.
Garam masala powder -1 tsp.
Fresh lemon juice – 1tbs.
Crispy fried onions - 1 handful
Curry leaves - a few
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp.
Ginger chopped –1/2 tsp.
Dried red chillies – 2 small
Green chilli chopped –1 small
Onion chopped -1 small
 Vegetable oil –1 cup
Cilantro chopped – ½ cup

Method:
1.   Clean, wash and towel dry the chicken breast and cut into bite size pieces.
2.   Rub salt and lemon juice and leave aside for 5 minutes.
3.   Meanwhile mix together ginger garlic paste, turmeric, red chilli powder & garam masala powder and rub the chicken pieces with it.
4.   Heat the vegetable oil in a pot or frying pan and deep fry the chicken pieces till just crisp. Remove and drain on wire rack. (Draining on paper towels makes them soggy).
5.   Heat one teaspoon vegetable oil in a clean sauce pan. Add mustard seeds and when they crackle add dried red chillies (whole) and curry leaves followed by chopped onion & green chilli.
6.   Give it a good stir and quickly add the fried chicken pieces to the sauce pan.
7.   Throw in the crispy fried onions chopped ginger and chopped cilantro. Sprinkle some lemon juice and salt as required, then quickly give it another good stir and remove from pan.
8.   The crispy (murmura) chicken snack is now ready to enjoy.
