Spicy Honey Chicken

As I write this recipe, my memories roll back 6 yrs, when none of our final year semester exams ended without this Spicy honey chicken. Thanks to Valar chicken.. we all four (Charu, Charu, Tharu n Divya) are die-hard fans of this yummy yummy curry. I have searched for this recipe for a long time and finally found it somewhere and tried it. As I repeated this recipe, I made few changes according to my taste. Here is the finger-licking chicken recipe.
Chicken(with bones) - 250 gm
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Curry powder/ chicken masala- 2 TbSp
Oil- as required
Ginger garlic paste- 1 TbSp
Green Chilly paste- 1/2 Tbsp
Tomato Ketchup - 4 TbSp
Honey- 2 TbSp
Lemon juice- 1 TbSp
Onion- 1
Salt- to taste

  1. Cut the chicken into small pieces and marinate it with turmeric powder, salt and 1 Tbsp of curry powder and keep it in the fridge for 20-30 mins.
  2. Deep fry the marinated chicken pieces, until they turn golden brown. 
  3. In a fry pan, pour 2 Tbsp of oil (that was used for frying the chicken) and fry ginger garlic paste and chilly paste. Cook in medium flame.
  4. Add the given amount of tomato ketchup and curry powder and mix well for 2 mins. Add salt. 
  5. Add 2 Tbsp of honey and 4 Tbsp of water to the curry and stir well until oil separates.
  6. Add the fried chicken pieces; mix well. 
  7. Add lemon juice and the onion rings and cook until the onion rings become translucent. By this time, the chicken absorbs the essence of the gravy.
  8. Spicy honey chicken is ready. You can have this with rotis, naans, paranthas and fried rice.
  •  Once the chicken pieces are fried, rest of the steps take hardly 12-15 mins.
  •  You can add more water, if you want the gravy to be thin.
  •  Take care that you do not burn the ginger garlic paste while frying.  
  • As you add the tomato ketchup and honey, the curry gives a strong smell. Don't panic, it will be fine :)
