Sharing a meal on the dining table with friends and family and spending valuable time with them, is one of the most important things we can do today. We all love gathering of near and dear ones at our place. It is also a good way to socialize with neighbors and people around us.
When it’s time to party, I forget about diet… Party means full on masti, lot of enjoyment . Although a party is about the people and conversation, party at home also brings a little stress to the host as she will be confused in deciding the menu . I always plan the menu before 3-4 days and try to keep it simple.
Chicken 65 is a spicy , deep fried chicken dish which is usually prepared by marinating chicken pieces with red chili paste, spices , eggs and curd. This can be prepared with both boneless and with bone chicken pieces. Fried green chilies, curry leaves play a vital role in this dish. It is served with sliced onion and lemon wedges. For me this is a perfect party starter for kids and adults too.
65 dishes were born in 1965 in famous Buhari Hotel,Chennai. This dish is a pride dish of Tamilnadu. I read it somewhere that “Chicken 65 is alleged to be a dish introduced in 1965 at the famous Buhari Hotel restaurant in Chennai by its founder A.M.Buhari, a pioneer in the South Indian food industry. They also offer Chicken 78, Chicken 82 and Chicken 90, introduced in 1978, 1982 and 1990 respectively”.
This is the sort of dish that can set your mouth on fire. This dish includes 2 steps cooking i.e. marinating and frying. Nowadays people have reintroduced the dish by giving tempering to the basic 65 recipes. Here are some variations like Jackfruit 65 and cauliflower 65. It has crazy saltiness and crunchiness to it. The punchy flavors of curry leaves, ginger, garlic and chilies, make a happy Indian dish. Chicken 65 is a classic, and this classic deserves a special mention.
