Chilli Chicken - Street Food Style




Ingredients:
  • 200gms of bone less chicken, cut into strips
  • 1 egg
  • 2 heaped tbs of cornflour
  • ½ cup capsicums, cut into 1” triangles
  • ½ cup onions, chopped into 1” squares
  • 1 inch ginger julienne
  • 1 tbs finely chopped garlic 
  • 7-10 green chilies slit into strips
  • 2 ½ tbs dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of vinegar
  • 3-4 tbs sesame oil
  • ½ cup of spring onions, chopped
  • 1tsp freshly ground peppercorn
  • Aji -no- moto, Salt to taste
Method:
  • Mix half the cornflour with 1 tablespoon of soya sauce and one beaten egg
  • Mix this with the chicken, marinate for ½ hour
  • Stir fry the chicken till the outside turns crispy, remove from the wok and place on blotting paper
  • Heat oil in a wok, as the oil turns smoking hot add the capsicum and onions. Stir well till the onions turn translucent. Add the green chilies, ginger and garlic.
  • Add the fried chicken and spring onions, and adjust the seasoning (be careful with salt as soy sauce, by itself, is high in sodium)
  • Dissolve the extra cornflour in the remaining soya sauce, and pour it in the wok then stir.
  • Add freshly ground pepper and cook till the chicken is evenly coated with the sauce
  • Serve hot garnished with chopped spring onions
