For the Chicken Marinade:

For the Sauce:


How to fry the Chicken:

  • Begin by making 3" thin strips from the chicken breast. Keep aside.
  • Prepare the roasted besan or garbanzo bean flour by dry roasting it in a skillet over medium heat. Keep stirring frequently because it tends to brown very fast. It should take you about 5-6 mins. When the flour becomes aromatic turn off the flame & allow it to cool completely before adding it to the marinade.
  • Next, add all the ingredients from " The chicken Marinade section"  mentioned above in the ingredients list, except the canola oil (for deep frying). Mix everything very well. If you feel that the marinade is little dry, add oil or yogurt to add some more moisture. The marinade should stick to the chicken.
  • Add oil in a heavy bottomed pan and make it hot over medium high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, dip the marinade chicken pieces one by one into the hot oil and fry until light golden over medium heat. If you have a small pan fry them in batches. Set aside over a Kitchen paper towel & let the excess oil drain.

How to prepare the Sauce:

  • Add oil in a skillet & heat it over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped garlic, slit chilies & curry leaves to the warm oil. Saute for 1 min.
  • Next, add the spices & saute for 2 mins.
  • Add the chopped cilantro,  the mint & the chili garlic sauce. Mix well & saute for a few mins until oil oozes out.
  • Now, lower the heat to the lowest setting & add the beaten yogurt (whisk the yogurt with few spoons water). Stir immediately & mix well. Saute for few mins until oil oozes out. At this point the sauce is ready.

How to coat the fried chicken with the sauce:

  • Add all the fried chicken strip to the sauce & coat well over medium high heat. Keep stirring, mixing & frying everything together until the chicken pieces are well coated. It should take you 5-6 mins.
  • Garnish with mint or coriander & serve hot. Enjoy!

How to make Chicken Majestic in Air Fryer:

  • The recipe remains the same. 
  • Except deep frying the chicken we will air fry it. For this Lay all the marinated chicken pieces in your air fryer basket. Lay them in single layer & DO NOT overcrowd ever! Spray or brush little oil.
  • Close the air fryer drawer & press the AIR FRY button. Set the temperature to 360 F & time to 6 mins. Press the START button.
  • After 3 mins, take out the air fryer basket & flip the chicken strips. Insert the basket back to the machine. It'll begin to air fry automatically and complete the rest of the time.
  • Set aside and follow the rest of the recipe as such.


  1. For juicy, tender chicken soak them in buttermilk for 2-3 hours or overnight. I skipped doing that & reduced the frying time instead.
  2. If you find the marinade a little dry, add little oil or yogurt to the marinade for extra moisture.
  3. The marinade should have enough moisture to cling to the chicken.
  4. DO NOT over fry the chicken otherwise they will become stiff & chewy. Fry only until lightly golden.
  5. Lower the temperature to the lowest setting & than add the yogurt to the pan. It won't split.
  6. To skip some extra calories do air fry your chicken strips.
  7. You will find every ingredient in INDIAN GROCERY STORES at better price.
