Chicken 65 Gravy Recipe

Chicken 65 is a popular recipe of South Indian cuisine. Boneless pieces of chicken are marinated with different spices, flour and curry leaves and thereafter deep fried in oil.


Chicken 65 is one of the popular dishes of South Indian cuisine.  Chicken 65 is a spicy, deep fried tasty chicken delicacy, originated in Chennai, India. It was first introduced in 1965 by the Buhari Hotel Restaurant in Chennai.

Boneless pieces of chicken are marinated with different spices, flour and curry leaves and thereafter deep fried in oil. Chicken 65 can be served as dry or as gravy. For gravy, the flour coated chicken pieces are again sauteed into a spicy curd gravy.

Although the chicken 65 is  a boneless chicken dish, I also use pieces of chicken with bones because my kids like it that way.
   
The recipe is not that complicated and I have used simple home ingredients which I store in my kitchen. Serve chicken 65 as a starter or as a side dish.
