1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp black pepper powder
salt to taste
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 cup corn flour or corn starch
3/4 cup water
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
2 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
oil for deep frying
3/4 cup plain corn flakes

How to make chicken tenders:

1. In a mixing bowl, add in all purpose flour, corn flour, pepper powder, salt, red chilli powder, garam masala. Whisk together.

2. Add water little by little and bring it to a thick batter.

3. In a bowl, add cleaned and washed chicken pieces, salt, pepper powder, ginger garlic paste. Mix it well and keep aside 5 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, fill 1/4 of a kadai/pan with oil for deep frying. We can start heating the kadai when we start dipping the chicken pieces in the corn flakes batter.

5. Now, dip the chicken pieces one by one into the batter and keep them aside in a plate. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

6. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs and little bit of milk and set aside.

7. Using a mixer, crush the plain corn flakes roughly. No need to grind them nicely.

 Add the crushed corn flakes to the remaining batter and keep it ready.

8. Once the batter dipped chicken had rested for 5 minutes, take each of the chicken pieces and dip it into egg mixture. Then into the corn flakes batter and keep the chicken pieces aside on a plate so that the batter sets in.

9. After some 6-7 minutes, once the oil is ready place the chicken pieces into the hot oil on high flame for 2 minutes frying on both sides.

10. Then reduce the flame to medium and cook the chicken pieces on each for 4-5 minutes or till they are cooked well from inside.

Tip: The cooking time of the chicken pieces depends on the size of the chicken pieces we have taken.

Once the pieces are cooked well, using a slotted spoon remove the chicken from the flame.

11. Pat the fried chicken pieces using a paper towel.

12. Serve the chicken tenders hot with a slice of lemon.
