  • 1.5 lb boneless chicken cut into small 1.5 inch strips


  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ginger paste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic paste

  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder


  1. Mix the marinade up in a bowl, add the chicken pieces, stir to coat well and set aside for 20 minutes or longer

  2. Whisk an egg and add it into the bowl, mix well.

  3. Add remaining batter ingredients and mix, if the mixture becomes too sticky add a small splash of water 

  4. Heat oil in a saucepan, at least one inch of oil is ideal

  5. When it starts to shimmer add the chicken pieces in one by one, making sure to shake any excess batter off into the bowl 

  6. Fry two minutes on each side until golden brown

  7. Eat hot with your favourite condiment

Recipe Notes

Do keep stirring the chicken pieces in between frying batches so that the batter remains even.
