Delicious Dragon Chicken Recipe

Fusion cuisines are interesting because it amalgamates the best elements of two different culinary practices. Dragon chicken is the perfect example of Indo-Chinese cuisine as it combines the spiciness of Indian cooking with the ‘umami’- a predominant flavor of the Chinese culinary method. It can be easily made at home and is an ideal dish for a simple weeknight dinner. So what are we waiting for? Let us get started.

How to make Dragon Chicken?

Dragon chicken is quite spicy. To make it, you will need to marinate the chicken in a magnificent blend of flavors. The chicken needs to be lightly fried and cooked in a spicy tangy sauce with cashew nuts that not only adds a crunchiness to the entire dish but also enhances the flavor. You can have it on its own or serve it with rice. Take a look at the detailed recipe below.
