Chicken Pakoda ( Nanking Style )

Nanking - Asian Fusion Restaurant, this is one of the famous Indo Chinese Restaurant in

 Hyderabad-Telangana and few  cities in USA. Today I will be talking about one of my family's

 favorite dish from this restaurant.  This is a simple yet delicious snack made of minced chicken. The

 only place I saw  this pakoda being  served is at Hyderabad location. Haven't seen this dish being

 served in USA location. This was on my todo list for many years now thinking they are so difficult to

 make. But thanks to covid, I have tried most of the difficult dishes during this lockdown. Nanking

 style Chicken Pakoda is one of them. I didn't know it was so simple to prepare until I tried it one day.

 So lets get started with this crispy outside and soft inside delicious Chicken Pakoda recipe.

Also add chopped cilantro and 1 egg.

Meanwhile beat 1 egg in a small bowl.

Once the chicken is marinated well, make small to medium size balls with it.

Now dip the ball in beaten egg, make sure egg is coated well.

Now dip it in a dry flour, coat well and place it on a plate.

Repeat the same process with rest of the chicken mixture.

Heat oil for deep frying, drop few chicken balls at a time and fry them well on medium heat till nice

 and crisp.

Serve hot with green chili sauce or any sauce which you like.
