Fried Chicken and Chips



This is a very simple recipe and honesly the best fried chicken ever! When we want to eat something but no one agrees in my family, I’m always certain that all of us can agree on THIS. Very easy and quick to make. This is my mum’s recipe originally. Thanks Mum.


  • 500g Chicken medium size pieces.
  • 3 Tbsp Red Chili Powder.
  • 2 tsp Ginger and Garlic paste.
  • Salt to taste.
  •  1 cup brown flour.
  • oil
  • 3 large Potatoes.


Wash and marinate the chicken with Red Chili Powder, G & G paste and salt. Set aside for at least 30 min.

Wash the potatoes, peel them and wash again properly. Put on a chopping board and after slicing them don’t wash them just leave in a bowl and set aside. Add oil in a fry pan and heat on high flame until hot but not burning hot otherwise the chicken will be done from the outside and raw from the inside. Coat the chicken with brown flour and shake off the excess. Put into the oil. Lower the flame to medium. Move the chicken around every 3-4 min until golden brown. Take out, drain the excess oil and place on kitchen towel.

Pour the oil in a separate pan or fryer but don’t use the same oil and fry the Potatoes until crisp and golden colour. Same as the above, drain the excess oil and place on kitchen towel, spread out, so as not to go soft.This can be served with Chatni, or any type of sauce.Enjoy!

The reason to not wash potatoes, after slicing them is because when they are fried they become nice and crispy.
