Vegetarians can use strips of potato instead of chicken
This recipe was shared in a cooking what’s app group , where amazing ladies share recipes with no inhibitions and then I googled and got a simple recipe from Ainy cooks and changed it a little to suit my family taste …when it was posted in the group , I was totally impressed by it and then remember having in years back , we had gone for ladies iftiyaar party and one of them had got these strips and told us she gets ready made strips from Bombay , we were like wow after that I totally forgot about it and past two days this recipe has been challenging and tempting me to surprise my kids and rest is history
Kids loved it and for sure they were surprised to know that the crisp coating was strips of samosa and most of you would agree with me ,the peace a mother gets when kids eat with no fuss is very unique ….
- Boneless Chicken – 500 gms ( cut in long strips.)
- Vinegar – 1 tbsp
- Black pepper 1/2 tsp
- Red chili flakes – 1/2 tsp
- Soya sauce – 1 tbsp
- Ginger and Garlic paste- 1 tsp
- Ajinomoto or Chinese salt – 2 pinch
- Eggs – 1
- Corn flour – 2 tbsp
- Flour- 1 tbsp
- Samosa/ spring roll wraps – 8-10 ( as required )
- Salt to taste
- Oil for frying
- Marinate chicken with salt, soya sauce, ginger and garlic paste, black pepper, Chinese salt, vinegar , red chili flakes , egg corn flour and maida , mix well Set aside for 2-3 hours.
- Cut spring roll wrap or samosa wrap into very thin strips and cover it with wet cloth other wise it become dry
- Roll each marinated chicken piece lengthwise in samosa wraps so that the chicken gets covered with the thin strips
- Fry in oil on medium flame till light nice brown color appear. Serve with ketchup or any sauce.
I took 35 minutes to make this dish ( coating the chicken with strips takes time )
Note : To save time , you can cut strips well before time and cover it with wet cloth
If the strips don’t stick to chicken , you can beat an egg with a pinch of salt , chili flakes and pepper powder , dip each chicken piece in the egg mixture and then roll on the strips …. Mine didn’t require this as the strips stuck perfectly to the chicken
