Classic Chicken Fry!

My cousins had dropped in for dinner and I planned to prepare my Nawabi Biryani and some chicken fry. Since the time I saw Cinnamon's Chicken fry, I wanted to make it for hubby dear. Now was the perfect chance. As I had to squeeze in with my time on preparing biryani and a fry I modified the recipe a bit. I remembered Amma making something like this, but didn't remember what all she added. Everything came out well and yes, hubby dear liked the chicken fry a lot and wanted me to prepare again. Thanks Cinnamon, this is highly recommended!
