  • 1 chicken breast cut in half
  • 2 buns
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Onion slices as required
  • Tomato slices as required
  • Mint mayo as required
  • Oil for frying

For the marinade:

  • ¼ cup yoghurt
  • 1.5 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tsp onion paste
  • Salt to taste

For the coating mixture:

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornflour
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley or you can also use fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt to taste


  • Cut the chicken breast in half and prick it with a toothpick. In a bowl, add yoghurt, red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, onion paste and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Cover and keep it in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight to marinate.
  • In another bowl, sift together all-purpose flour and cornflour. Add red chilli powder, dried parsley, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Stir everything well. Keep it aside.
  • After 2 hours, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. Then shake off the excess marinade and place the chicken pieces into the coating mixture. Coat well and shake off the excess. Again dip it into the marinade, shake off the excess marinade, dredge it into the coating mix and shake off excess flour mixture.
  • Heat oil in a small wok over medium-high flame. Once hot, carefully drop a chicken piece into the oil. Fry one chicken piece at a time. Lower the flame to medium-low and cook until the chicken is golden brown in colour. It may approximately take 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Cut the buns in half and apply butter on both the sides generously. Heat a non-stick pan over medium flame and toast the buns. Spread a dollop of mint mayonnaise on the buns. Top with onion and tomato slices.
  • Place a fried chicken piece over it and top with another bun half. The fried chicken burger is ready to serve.


Homemade mint mayonnaise - In this recipe, I have used store-bought mint mayo. But if you like you can make it at home. Just add 1/4 cup mint leaves, 2 green chillies, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, sugar, salt and 1 tbsp lemon juice in a blender jar. Blend until you get a fine paste. Mint mayonnaise is ready and always store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
