Chicken 65 is a very popular starter ,which originated from tamilnadu - a state in India. It has some interesting stories ,like it was first prepared in a military canteen, by a local chef. Initially it was prepared out of 65 ingredients,hence its name chicken 65. I still remember the days at my mom's place , will prepare this often. I would get a ready made mix to prepare the dish. But here,could not find those masalas,so prepared with the regular chilli pwdr. The secret lies in frying the chicken without any moisture,if not the chicken 65 will be soggy. Always,pat dry the chicken and then fry it.
