Chicken Pakoda | Chicken Pakora Recipe

Chicken pakoda
Chicken Pakoda is absolutely delicious chicken dry dish. It is a crispy starter which is commonly found in street sides. Some days I simply have this alone for dinner. I love this to a great extent. Earlier, I was confused this fry with chicken 65. So I was trying to make this with various ingredients. But every time i failed to give the same result as we got from the shops. Recently my hubby told me it is pakoda and not 65. He also ask me to fry it twice like we saw on street side shops while making. Initially, I thought that they fry it twice to make it hot but now I realize the fact behind frying twice.
