Simple Spicy Chicken Fry

The what
Chicken -  2lbs ( cut in small pieces)
Red chilli powder  - 2 tbsp
Salt -  to taste
Oil - 3 tbsp
Perunjeeragam - 2 tsp ( slightly crushed)
Curry leaves - a few

The how
For this recipe ,I have used boneless chicken, with bones will actually taste better.And I had made this extremly spicy, so please choose red chilli powder as per your tolerence.Heat oil in a pan on medium high heat, quickly splutter perumjeeragam and curry leaves.Before it turns all black on you , add the chicken pieces and saute for a min or two.Now add red chilli powder and salt .Keep sauting on medium high flame for about 5-6 minutes.Once you see that all pieces are getting bit darker in the outside, reduce the flame to medium low.Keep sauting untill chicken is well cooked and looks similar to what's in the picture.Serve it as appetizer, or a side dish, your wish.
This dish requires more than expected oil , so be little generous with it. But hey , you can be happy that you are not deep frying ! ;)
