You can also marinate it overnight for best results(keep it inside the fridge)

Step 2) Fry the chicken pieces in hot oil until all the sides are golden and crispy.Do not overcrowd the pieces,leaves some space between the pieces so that they cook uniformly and stay crispy.Fry them in small batches.
