Dragon Chicken

Dragon Chicken is a Indo Chinese Dish which is a little spicy dry dish. I tasted the dish in a Chinese restaurant in India and fell in love with it.
The ingredients are simple and the process to make is simple too.
The dish can be served as an appetizer or along with fried rice. 

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 
Marinating Time: 15-20 minutes 
Cook Time: 20 minutes 
Serves: 4


To marinate:
Chicken Thighs: 500 gms cut in long thin strips (you can use different cuts per choice)
Red chili paste: 2 teaspoons 
Ginger garlic paste: 1 tablespoon 
Egg : 1
All purpose flour/Maida: 1/2 cup 
Corn starch: 1/4 cup 
Soy sauce: 2 teaspoons 
Ground pepper: 1 teaspoon 
Salt to taste 
Ajinomoto: 1 teaspoon 

For sauce:
Dry red chilies: 3-4
Onion : 1 sliced thinly 
Green pepper/capsicum: 1 small sliced thinly 
Ginger garlic paste: 1 tablespoon 
Tomato ketchup: 1/4 cup 
Red chili paste: 1 tablespoon 
Soy sauce: 1 teaspoon 
Sugar : 1 teaspoon 
Water: 1/4 cup 

Take all ingredients listed for marinating, mix well and marinate them for 15-20 minutes.
Heat oil for deep frying and fry the chicken to golden color in 2-3 batches. Each Bach should take about 6-8 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan, add dry red chilies and fry for 1 minute. Add onions and green pepper. Sauté them on high heat for 2 minutes, add ginger garlic paste and fry for 30 seconds. Add all sauces, mix well and cook for 1 minute. Add water and cook for 1 minute. Simmer the stove and add fried chicken. Toss well to coat. Turn off stove.
