Chindian Or Andhra Style? Here’s Where You Can Find The Best Chilli Chicken In Town

Navya posted on 07 October

Bangaloreans are united in their love for a few things — there’s beer, of course, but also chilli chicken {be it Andhra or Chinese style}. Which is why, it comes as no surprise, that every small and big food establishment lists it on their menu. Few, however, have mastered the art, here’s a list of them.

The Double Fried Chilli Chicken here sure does get your meal to a rocking start. The juicy bits of chicken are coated in a batter before being fried up and tossed around with plenty of chillies. The dish makes a perfect combination with the mellow Coriander Soup or the classic Sweet & Corn Soup.

Well, this brewpub sure knows what we, Bangaloreans, love with our beer – Old School Chilli Chicken. We love that they don’t try to mess with the flavours {and our emotions}. So, you get pieces of meat coated in a spicy, finger-licking sauce before it hits the pan with crunchy slivers of onion and bell peppers. Heaven!

Bheema’s

Of course, we weren’t going to leave out our beloved Andhra Chilli Chicken out of this, especially, the one that comes from Bheema’s famed kitchen. A top pick to go with their meals or even a plate of biryani, the Andhra Chilli Chicken here features chunks of chicken dressed up in a translucent masala and gleaming chillies.

Biergarten

The appetiser section of Biergarten’s menu is peppered with interesting bar nibbles including the Guishao Chilli Chicken. Hunks of tender chicken are thrown into a wok along with a generous helping of Sichuan pepper and a chilli sauce. You better keep those tissues handy for this one!

Nandini

This chain restaurant has lost much of its sheen over the years, we admit. But we can’t help but keep coming back for their stellar Chilli Chicken. While other Andhra joints have dialled down the heat in this iconic dish, Nandini prefers to go in all guns blazing which is why it earns a spot here.

Danny Lamba’s Punjabi Dhaba

This hole-in-the-wall joint in Indiranagar’s BDA Complex is known to pack a punch when it comes to flavours. And their Chilly Chicken {their spelling, not ours} doesn’t disappoint either! They slather the chicken bits in plenty of spices and chilli before it hits the pan. Best had with a refreshing glass of Jal Jeera or their creamy Lassi.

Windsor Pub

The name Fiery Chilli Chicken says it all! Pair your chilled beer with this cracker of a dish and you won’t have any complaints. They marinate cubes of tender chicken in a masala that includes plenty of bird-eye chilli and fresh coriander. The resulting dish will have you breathing fire.

At this popular Chinese joint, the Chilli Chicken is a sure hit with patrons. The meat comes drenched in a thick, chilli-heavy gravy that goes perfectly with helpings of their comforting Fried Rice or even their Hakka Noodles.

Watson’s

At this buzzing bar, the Chilli Chicken is always a good choice. The meat is first batter-fried which gives the dish an extra crunch. It is then fried up with a chilli paste and other spices before being served hot.
