Chicken 65|| crispy juicy succulent chicken cooked with a spicy tangy sauce infused with a flavor of curry leaves|| party starters

Chicken 65 is a spicy deep fried chicken dish originating from Hotel Buhari, Chennai, India as an entree or quick snack. The flavor of the dish can be attributed to red chillies and curry leaves but the taste may vary.

It is a very appetising dish and its a must order when ever we visit a restaurant. It is not that it needs very difficult ingredients to prepare it. It really needs all the ingredients already present in your kitchen. The curry leaves gives a beautiful flavour to it and the chilli garlic sauce adds the main taste to it.

This recipe is a keeper and We don’t know how many times we’ve made it.
