Chicken 65 and its Name

There are many stories behind the name of this South Indian dish, Chicken 65. One reports that in a Chennai military canteen, this Chicken dish was on number 6 on the menu card. When the soldiers would want to order it, they would simply ask for the number 65 and, thus, the name Chicken 65 came into being. The other story reveals, to make this dish, it would take almost 65 days to prepare; another one says since Chicken 65 was a combination of 65 spices, hence the name. While another story reveals that Chicken 65 was introducd by Buhari Hotel in Chennai.

Whatsoever is its origin, I like the dish very much and I bet once you cook it for your dear ones (like I did) your Chicken 65 will be more in demand!

Chicken 65 can me made in various ways. Usually Chicken 65 is made with the boneless chicken but here since I was making it at home I’d taken the chicken with bones. It’s up to you whether you want to make it boneless or along with bones.

This dish is full of protein, and gives an amazing taste. It is very soft, juicy and crispy in texture. So, make it on your own. I promise you won’t go to the restaurant for Chicken 65 next time because you already know how to make the yummylicious Chicken 65.

I didn’t add eggs in Chicken 65, as I don’t like the taste and smell of it. Instead I have used yoghurt. Try this eggless form of Chicken 65.  Continue reading “Chicken 65 Recipe”

Aloo Matar Chaat

Aloo Matar Chaat Recipe

CHAAT is a street food. It is served as side dish or snacks. It is more popular among North Indians. Chaat is made with boiled potatoes (Aloo). The potatoes are shallow fried and served by mixing other spices, onions and various mouth-watering chutneys.

Chaat too has many variations and flavours that include Aloo chaat, Aloo-chana chaat, Aloo-green peas chaat, papdi chaat, samosa chaat, pani puris, basket chaat and many other.

“Chaatna” is the hindi word of chaat which means to taste.

Today, I am going to make Aloo and green peas (matar) chaat. However, making chaat with Aloo is very healthy as it contains dietary fibers and good source of vitamin B-6 and vitamin C. Whereas, Green peas which is also known as Hari matar or garden peas or Chhimi are also very healthy. The green peas are rich in minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. Fresh green peas are available in winters only. For the rest of the year you can get the frozen one.

Chaat is favourite of young and old. Even Kids cannot stop themselves to take their hands off from the yummy dish. It’s a mouth-watering dish.

Here is the recipe card of Aloo Matar Chat. Continue reading “Aloo Matar Chaat Recipe”
