Step 1: Preparing the Marinade

Begin your culinary adventure by creating a vibrant and flavorful marinade. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon each of ginger and garlic paste, 2 cups of plain yogurt, a teaspoon of red chili powder, half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, and salt to taste. This blend of spices will not only infuse your chicken with an irresistible aroma but also tenderize it to perfection. Stir thoroughly until you get a smooth and thick paste. The harmonious blend of spicy and savory, coupled with the creaminess of yogurt, sets the base for what's to become a delectable indulgence.
Pro Tip: Ensure your yogurt is at room temperature to avoid curdling when mixed with spices.

Step 2: Marinating the Chicken

Now, it's time to introduce the 2 pounds of boneless chicken pieces to your freshly prepared marinade. Ensure each piece is generously coated with the mixture for an even flavor absorption. For the best results, let the chicken be enveloped in this masala haven for about 4 hours, or even better, overnight in the refrigerator. This step is crucial as it allows the chicken to soak in all the flavors, ensuring each bite is as delicious as the last. The longer marination time not only deepens the flavors but also ensures the chicken remains moist and tender once cooked.
Pro Tip: For a deeper infusion of flavors, score the chicken pieces lightly before marinating.

Step 3: Frying the Chicken

Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot enough, gently lower the marinated chicken pieces into the oil and fry them in batches. This ensures each piece is cooked evenly and gets that perfect golden color. Fry until the chicken is crisply on the outside yet tender and juicy on the inside. This might take about 8-10 minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces. The key is to not overcrowd the pan to achieve that irresistible crunch. As they reach their golden perfection, place the chicken pieces on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. The result? Crispy, golden Chicken 65 that's ready to be devoured.
Pro Tip: Maintain the oil temperature to ensure the chicken cooks evenly without absorbing too much oil.
