Bohra Fried Chicken Pakistani Recipe

Bohra Fried Chicken Recipe

Are any fried chicken lovers here? Well, this Bohri fried chicken is not crispy-crusted chicken like most other chicken. It has a soft, succulent coating made with bread crumbs, cooked chicken, and eggs.

This Bohri fried chicken is pretty unique of its kind. I’m super excited and elated to share this recipe as I had tested it 3 times. I was good every time but not like the one you get at Bohra’s wedding. I wanted it to be just like caterers, so here’s my version of this chicken.

Marinate Chicken

  • 750 grams skinless chicken bone-in ( preferably thigh and drumsticks)
  • 1 medium tomato pureed , notes 1
  • 5 tbsp lemon juice or 3 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tbsp yogurt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1-2 tbsp minced green chili serrano or other spicy chilli, notes 2
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp corriander powder
  • ½ tbsp Kashmiri chili or paprika
  • ¾ tsp salt or to taste
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp black pepper powder

For Coating:

  • ½ cup bread crumbs more for coating
  • 2 large eggs yolk, and white separated
  • a pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp water
  • oil to deep fry


Marinate Chicken

  • Put all the ingredients to marinate the chicken in a pot and mix well. Marinate for 30 minutes on the counter (or preferably overnight in the fridge).

Cook chicken

  • Cook marinated chicken on medium heat for 20 minutes until fully cooked and tender (but not falling off the bones).
  • Then burn excess water on high heat with frequent stirring until you have a very thick gravy coating the chicken. Remove from heat and let the chicken cool enough to handle.

Coat Chicken

  • Now, add breadcrumbs to the pot and shake the pot with handles to mix all. Coat chicken with wet crumbs from the pot and coat firmly by pressing chicken lightly in the fist. (Wears food handling gloves to avoid chili burns)

Prepare Egg Wash

  • Whisk egg whites in a bowl for a minute with hand whish until fluffy.
  • Then beat egg yolks with red chili, salt, and water. Now mix egg yolks and egg whites together.

Fry Chicken

  • Heat about 2 inches oil in a pot. Dip each piece in egg wash then deep-fry chicken until golden brown. Serve hot with any dip or chutney.


  1. The recipe is tested with and without tomato. Tomato keeps the bread crumb coating juicy and flavorful, so I recommend adding a pureed tomato, so it not visible and gives background flavor. You can replace tomato with 1 tablespoon tomato paste or ketchup too.
  2. I used small and thin green chilies that are very spicy. The bread crumbs coating will absorb the masala and undermine the flavors so start with a strongly flavored gravy.
