How to make delicious chicken 65 ?

Chicken 65 recipe is easy to do and so yummy. Get it with onion slices and a fresh lemon juice and you are in heaven.Behind this odd name, this delicious recipe is made of pieces of boneless chicken marinated in a spicy yogurt and then fried.

So, what does that mean chicken 65? Some says that we need 65 different spices (and even India is the Land of spices, it sounds difficult to get such a variety), or that we use 65 whole chilies to make it spicier.

Others I would likely trust (thought...) tell about 65 days of marinade, use 65 days old chicken or else, that the recipe dates from 1965.

Unfortunately I won't give you the answer, only the famous recipe so you would lick your fingers at home while munching those delicious pieces of chicken.

Some onion rings and lemon to accompany with
