  3. Take 3-4 bread slices and grind them in a mixer grinder to get the coarse bread crumbs.
  4. Take 1/2 cup cornflour and 3 tbsp plain flour (maida) and add bread crumbs to the mix followed by some salt to taste.
  5. Now, take a big plastic bag and put the flour mix in the bag. Start adding marinated chicken pieces one by one on the bag.
  6. Pull and twist the top of the bag such that some air gets trapped in it. Shake the bag till each piece of chicken gets a good coat of flour and crumb mix.
  7. Heat some oil in a frying pan and drop the chicken pieces in the oil. Fry them till they become golden brown.
  8. Once done, shake off the excess oil and take them on a paper towel.
For seasoning:

  2. Take another big plastic bag and add the fried chicken pieces and masala mix to it. Seal the top to trap some air inside and shake the bag for few seconds to give a good coat of seasoning around each piece of chicken.
  3. Popcorn chicken is now ready to be served. Enjoy!
