Chicken Rawa Fry

My Little one just loves chicken and calls it chicken fish. She eats a very less of it, but she loves the taste and jumps with joy when she sees the fried chicken.
The other day, my hubby took her to the shop and they got home Real Good Chicken. My little one wanted to play with the packet. But then we told her that there is chicken in it and it has to be cooked. Immediately she handed the packet to me. I cleaned and marinated the chicken. But my little one just had no patience and wanted to eat that chicken fish as she calls it 🙂
I just marinated the chicken for 1 hour and then tried 3 dishes. One was green chicken, one was chicken malvani and the 3rd was chicken rawa fry. Green chicken for me, chicken malvani for my hubby dear and the 3rd one was for my little barbie doll. We did have all the 3 dishes and it was real fun. The chicken rawa fry was a hit as my little one loved it a lot. The special taste of green masala made it really great.
Funniest thing was that, I was feeling bored to cook. I even told my mom on phone that I will not cook that day. But at night for dinner I ended up cooking 3 things at a time and also made some chapatis along. God knows from where I got that stamina to cook so much. But I think it was only because of the long weekend that we had. My mom was surprised to hear that I ended up with 3 chicken dishes and that too in the month of Shravan where most of the Indian Hindus do not consume non-veg food.

10 – 12 boneless chicken pieces
