Notes:

  1. Regular bread crumbs can be used if you don’t have panko bread crumbs.
  2. Increase the amount of chili powder added to the bread crumbs if you like it spicier.
  3. Corn flour can be used instead of all purpose flour (Maida).
  4. This recipe is definitely healthier than the regular fried chicken. This will make a healthy dinner when served with a bowl full of rainbow salad.

I will soon post the recipe for rainbow salad. Stay tuned!
