Chicken 65

14 August, 2013

Chicken 65 is a hot and spicy, deep fried,lip-smacking chicken dish of South India. Thought of making this dish many times but somehow couldn't end up doing it.  It was raining heavily yesterday and so I made this yummy dish and served with hot coffee. It tasted great and everyone in my family enjoyed. Gobi 65, Mushroom 65 can also be made for the veggie lovers. Chicken 65 served in restaurants is usually fiery red in colour due to the addition of red food colour. But I used Kashmiri red chilli powder instead.


  • Boneless chicken - 250 gms (cut into bite size pieces)
  • Yogurt - 1/2 cup
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1tsp
  • Garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Maida/All purpose flour - 1 tsp
  • Red colour - 2-3 drops(optional)
  • For marinade:
  • Egg - 1
  • Cornflour - 2 tbsp
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
  • Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
  • For tempering / tarka:
  • Oil - 11/2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Musterd seeds - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 15-20
  • Green chillies - 4-5
  • Whole red chilli - 2-3(split in 1/2)


  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with the ingredients under - for marinade for atleast an hour.
  2. In a bowl, mix yogurt, kashmiri red chilli powder, garlic paste, salt and maida. Keep aside.
  3. Heat oil for frying. Add the marinated chicken pieces and fry on medium heat till the pieces are cooked nicely. Now increase the flame and cook till the pieces turn golden brown in colour.Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.
