How to prepare Crispy Kozhi Ada?

1. Mix ingredients no: 1 to prepare the dough.

2. Cut chicken into pieces and cook it well adding ingredients no: 3.

3. Water content should be fully absorbed.

4. Once done, remove bone pieces from chicken and blend once in a mixer.

5. Heat oil and fry sliced onions till it turns brown.

6. Take fried onions from oil and then remove all oil except 4 big spoons.

7. Heat this oil and sauté garlic paste till a pleasant smell comes out.

8. Add minced meat and fry it well.

9. Crush fried onions using fingers and add to chicken.

10. Add the powders and fry it well.

11. Make small balls from maida dough and spread thin on a surface.

12. Using a tumbler make perfect round shapes.

13. In each round piece, place a little filling on one side and fold it to get semi-circular shapes.

14. Stick the edges and press with a spoon, or using fingers you can twin the edges and make perfect shape (as shown in figure).

15. Deep fry them in hot oil (which you have kept aside) and drain excess oil.

16. When it cools, you can store in containers.

Note: Filling should be crispy. Then only your Kozhi Ada turns crispy too.

In the recipe published in the magazine, nothing is told what to do with curry leaves. I would suggest you to fry them as you did with onions, and smash it and add at the final stage of frying minced meat mixture. When fried in oil, curry leaves get a pleasant aroma. When it is smashed and added to the filling, it enhances its taste. I have added a couple of Chicken ada recipes, and you can read it here – Recipe 1 and Recipe 2. They have slight differences. That’s why I repeated once more.
