What is Chilli Chicken?

Chilli chicken is a sweet, spicy and slightly sour gravy recipe made with chicken, bell peppers, garlic, chilli, tomato sauce and soya sauce.

It is basically a chicken dish that is made with boneless chicken pieces. They are marinated in soya sauce, black pepper powder, salt, vinegar, corn flour, and egg. Marinated chicken pieces are then deep fried and again seasoned with sauces.

The vegetarian version can be substituted by paneer ,tofu, soya or mushroom.
