Clean and cut the chicken pieces  into small cubes. Make a batter of  maida, cornflour, chilli powder, beaten egg, and salt. Batter should not be runny or else it won’t coat the chicken properly. Marinate the chicken pieces in this batter for 1-2 hours refrigerated. Deep fry the chicken pieces till it turns golden brown.

Heat oil in a pan, add onion, ginger, and garlic. Toss it for a minute. Add green chillies, capsicum, spring onions, and celery. Saute for   2-  3   minutes. Add soya sauce, chilli sauce, tomato sauce, and salt as required. Add corn flour mixed with 1/2 cup of water and pour this to the pan. Stir in the fried chicken   pieces  and  combine  it  well. Simmer  for 3 minutes and  remove from heat. Garnish with spring onions and celery leaves. This chilli chicken goes well with fried rice and chapathi.
