Serve this super delicious fried chicken bezule with sliced onions and lime wedges.

1:-If the batter is too dry,the marinade will come off the chicken when frying.So if you get a dry batter,add in a few drops of water to get a slightly wet batter so that it sticks well onto the chicken.
2:-Do not add many pieces of chicken at a time while frying.That is,do not overcrowd the pan.
3:-Do not over fry the chicken .Fry to perfection to get nice tender pieces.
4:-Do not skip the marinating part.
