Chilii Chicken (Indo-Chinese) – By VahChef @

hello namaste salaamwalekum satsriyakaal; welcome back to another session with your VahChef at The other day I’ve got call from one of
my friend who called me after looking at my website he was telling me how he went to Singapore for training
session and you looked all over and he could never find chilli chicken because Indo Chinese chili chicken is so unique it belongs to the India. and today I’ll show you how to make it at home even if your home in Singapore Italy anywhere so today to make the chilli chicken, for this preparation I love to use dark meat cut into small
pieces dark meat is the thigh meat of the chicken because when you fry the meat this comes out really soft and tender. I have got some chillies I took scissor and cut them into kind of nice edges okay some bell peppers that is green pepper I have got onion and what i did, i cut the onions into little cubes and separated them out, little ajinomoto pepper powder, egg, chopped ginger and chopped garlic, very finely chopped half half, nice cashew nuts see when I used to work in Park Sheraton in the chicken they used to used whole big cashew nuts since I don’t have the whole big cashew nut I’m using broken cashew nut and for like kung pao you use peanuts for chilli chicken Chinese style we used
to use cashew nuts salt sugar I’m going to use just a pinch of sugar corn flour I added just little some water so I can use it as thickening for my sauce Have some sesame seed oil as for lot of
Chinese cooking we used to use sesame seed oil soya sauce see for this preparation you can use kikkoman soya sauce, chilli garlic paste, I’ve got some spring onion and celery that I cut into small pieces add 1 tablespoon of cornflour, little pinch of ajinomoto little bit of salt and add one egg mix all these ingredients together add little bit pepper powder and mix it again so we’re going Fry these now. Once the oil is hot start; take your chicken and just fry the chicken okay so now the chicken is ready so let’s
remove this ha ha ha..I have my chicken fried and ready so what I’m going to do I’m going to use
some sesame oil to make my chilli chicken. heat some oil in a pn Add your red chilli cut into slices okay yeah look at this okay add chopped ginger and garlic you can use lot of ginger and garlic, it gives nice flavor ok…wow…this is beautiful and add the cashew nuts add onion dices add your bell pepper add your celery and spring onion add pepper powder see a lot of times see
some times people love to use little chilli powder so for all those people who love to use to
chilli powder little bit of chilli powder and lot of times they use mixed vegetables also in this preparation now add some soya sauce ok add little chilli garlic paste, mix it real good ah…. what a flavor, add little ajinomoto add little bit sugar and little bit salt okay what we do after we add these ingredients immediately we add chicken stock, since we don’t have chicken stock and I’m sure lot of you people cooking
at home won’t have chicken stock so what we are going to do. we’re going to add water okay see the soya sauce, the chilli garlic sauce and ajinomoto all these things have so much flavor and specially we had bell pepper and these red chillies give lof of flavor to it so don’t worry if you don’t have chicken stock. one of my friend was suggesting hey you know what you know when they
don’t have chicken stock what he used to do he used go and buy those maggi noodles in which that little stock packet comes he used to put so he used to use that, if you want to use it, you can use anything, otherwise even if you don’t have its fine so bring it to a nice boil add one or two teaspoon of vinegar that gives nice strong nice flavor okay now the mixture is come to a boil now add your chicken okay okay so add your chicken, see remember there is some corn flour on this the chicken too but just wait for two seconds and add spoonfull of this water don’t add too much, add one, two three, four; first mix little bit and then toss it over. see if i would have added more this would have been a messed up chicken because I added just little bit spoon by spoon now the sauce is really thick and nice. so
all you have to do is slow it down. Just let it absorb the nice flavors. Now our chilli chick is ready let’s put it on our plate haha look at this look….look at this haha good Ah man this you’ll have to make it wow awesome hmm… you have enjoyed today’s session of learning to make this truely Indian dish but with a heavy chinese accent . Chinese, Italian, Malaysian, Japanese, Canadian we’re all one on the web infact I was
looking at the statistic other day and I was so pleased to see in fact very pleasant surprise. to see that I got clicks from 124 countries some I haven’t even heard of like Antigua, Barbuda Marina islands and so many other
countries you know So the power of internet is so amazing. so if your tongue and the palate desire it offers you room service to the comfort of your computer monitor
remember that is all about
inspiring others to cook So please post your recipes and cooking
tips so others may benefit from your
great cooking thank you

  12. Vishnu charan reddy says:

    wow this man is excitingly irritating and irritatingly exciting. He is just like my dad. put your words into blender and make a paste out of it and then fill it into the ears of the listener. so that even if the listener does'nt want to listen; he cant escape and if he wants to say some thing then there wont be any SAYING but only CONVINCING. But I just love this guy just I adore my dad for being annoyingly convincing and ALWAYS PERFECT. chef u r good no matter how u talk. ur excitement is cute.

  13. ananya chatterjee says:

  17. EvesRUs elegantgiftshop says:

    Yummy. Thanks for sharing.

  18. strategicconsultants says:

    i suggest using 1/4 the chili or just skip the cayenne, whole chili capitalizing only on the chili garlic sauce and add a little bit of brown sugar

  19. strategicconsultants says:

    ajinamoto is one of the most popular manufacturers of msg in asia

  20. Nell Braley says:

    Your dish will be very tasty because of the Ajinomoto but you have to know that Ajimoto is very poisoning can cause cancer; most western people don't use it in their cooking.

  28. pucrob says:

    What is ajiinmoto?

  29. se3biscuit says:

    Monosodium Glutamate or commonly known as MSG.

  30. pucrob says:

    Wow, I didn't think MSG was being used anymore, especially in recipes for home cooking! I know they put it in some processed foods, but I don't eat to much of processed foods anyway.

  31. Edward Terisno says:

    "ah man, this you have to make it!" lol

  33. Arulnathar Lutheran Church -Musical worship says:

    r u tamilian???

  34. John Mitrovski says:

    what happens if you don't add ajinomoto? will it taste bad?

  35. Sruthi V says:

    He is telugu! watch out his interview with Mahesh Babu!

  36. luenaiya says:

    Isn't there an ingredients list with measurements anywhere??

  37. Tsadok Tsur says:

    Love your recipes and your spirit!!! thank you!!!

  38. Nuzycom says:

    It's a great hit in my family, thanks a lot chef .

  39. Who's the Hadi? says:

    Using this recipe, I made some modifications: No ajinomoto (MSG), green/red/yellow bell peppers, no celery, use ginger garlic paste and make a heavier gravy like sauce by adding more soy sauce, chicken stock or water and the chili garlic paste, more sugar than a teaspoon and I use store bought toasted cashews and sprinkle them on the top in the end. You could substituted sauteed paneer in place of chicken in this recipe too.

    Really good base recipe too with room for modifications.

  40. Yeiten K Singh says:

    no, it won't taste bad, u can any safe "sodium glutamate" recommended by your country instead.

  41. Navjot Dhiman says:

  76. Amar Jeet says:

  77. Bhavna says:

    Chef, what variation we will have to make in recipe for use of Airfryer. I always try to avoid deep frying. Also please suggest alternative for MSG. Sometimes I use ripe tomatoes for umami taste but it will change the recipe.
