Preparation Method
1.Make a marinade of the above ingredients. It should be in the form of a thick paste so that the chicken pieces get coated well. Add the chicken cubes and marinate it for an hour. You can place it in the fridge.
2.Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the chicken pieces. Keep it aside and allow it to cool.
3.Heat oil in another pan and saute the onions, ginger and garlic till the onions become translucent.
4.Next add capsicum pieces and saute for 2 minutes.
5.Add the spring onions and saute for a while.
6.Reduce heat and stir in 1 tsp chilly powder,hot and sweet red chilly sauce, soy sauce and salt.
7.Sprinkle 1 tsp pepper powder.
8.Add the fried chicken pieces to the pan and toss everything so that the gravy is coated on the chicken.
9.Remove from heat after 2-3 minutes.

If you want gravy for your Chilly Chicken, add 1 cup of water or stock after step 7 and bring it to a slow boil.
To thicken the gravy, dissolve 1 tbsp of Corn Flour in 1/4 cup of warm water and add it to the chilly chicken.
