Chicken Fry

I got this recipe from my colleague during our train journey ;). It came out well and since then have become a regular in our kitchen. Adding of cumin powder to this dish is purely optional. It tastes yummy with or without it. This fry requires less oil and is the simple dish I’ve prepared.
