Chicken deep fried in any form is always a hit at home. Especially with my carnivores boy. For the sake of him, I make sure to find and try out more such recipes. This recipe is an authentic Parsi one that had a surprise element of dipping the marinated chicken into beaten egg and deep dried. The chicken was soft and moist inside with a crispy exterior of egg out side. This chicken farsha made every one go ooh and aah over it with age no bar. I have added it to my regulars at home. I am sure it will soon be a regular at your homes too.
