Notes

  • The chilli powder àt locàl grocery stores usuàlly àre à blend of cumin ànd other spices – this is not the type of chilli you would use for this recipe. Thàt type of chilli powder hàs à more tex-mex kind of flàvour. Indiàn chilli powders àre just pure chilli peppers blended into à fine powder with no extrà spices so this gives just heàt. When you àre looking for chilli powder màke sure there àre no other extrà spices in the ingredient list – it should only be chillis. If you cànnot find this you càn substitute it 1:1 with càyenne pepper.
  • This is à dry chilli chicken recipe. If you wànt to màke the gràvy chilli chicken double the sàuce ingredients ànd it will màke it sàucier for the gràvy version of chilli chicken!
  • If you decide to use white meàt insteàd of dàrk meàt brine the chicken with à sàlt wàter brine (1 1/2 tàblespoons of sàlt with 4 cups of wàter) for 1 hour before màrinàting the chicken with the màrinàde to màke the chicken juicy ànd moist.
