First you start by making a batter for the chicken - mix corn flour, flour, salt, pepper and one egg to make the batter. We also add soy sauce and ginger garlic paste for added flavor.
Make the Batter
Whisk the ingredients together vigorously with a fork. There should be no clumps whatsoever.
Now pour the batter over your chicken and toss until all pieces are well covered.
Heat your oil in a heavy bottomed sauté pan. When the oil is hot enough, spread out your coated chicken pieces in a single layer. It is important to not crowd the pan, so work in batches if you must.
Fry the chicken 2-3 minutes, until golden brown and lightly crispy. Flip and repeat on the other side.
When the chicken is cooked to perfection, use a slotted spoon to remove it from the pan. Place it on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Now it's time to make your yummy sauce.
