Kolkata style chilli chicken is packed with extra punch keeping all the flavorful goodness of Indo-Chinese food intact. It’s sizzling spicy and insanely addictive!
Kolkata has an intricate relationship with Chinese food, Indo-Chinese food to be specific. You will find specific localities dedicated to scrumptious Chinese food and you will be spoilt for choices. When I was little, I used to freak out on these Chinese delicacies, chilli chicken being the most addictive one. Chilli chicken which you get in the fancy Chinese restaurants is very different from the typical Kolkata style chilli chicken and today I bring this very tempting dish to you from my city of joy. In Kolkata style chilli chicken, you will find small bone-in pieces which is unlikely in the fancier ones; but it has the charm of its own. When I was in college, my luxury afternoon snack was this super-yummy chilli chicken which we used to share among friends with utmost glee!
Gone are those college days but I could not yet get over the deliciousness of my Kolkata chilli chicken. Hence, I had to recreate that magic in my kitchen and share it with you all. I made this Kolkata style chilli chicken more than couple of times at home, but could not click the process photos, so was waiting to make it again and share the fully stocked recipe with you all. I hope the step-by-step photos in the slideshow below help you all to make my recipes at home and delight you and your family in the same way as mine.
