Sesame Chicken

Sesame chicken is a very popular restaurant dish which is quite similar like General Tso's chicken and this dish is commonly found in most of the chinese restaurants throughout the world..this dish goes for boneless chicken marinated with soya sauce and sesame oil, then fried as deep frying finally prepared with a transculent, reddish brown, semi thick sauce made with corn starch, rice vinegar, sugar and dark soya sauce, topped with sesame seeds, this  dish is prepared as two methods some may go for shallow frying the chicken pieces and others go for deep frying and the sesame oil and sesame seeds used in this dish turns out this chicken dish very delicious..This sesame chicken is generally served with rice...Last time i had this fantastic sesame chicken when we went to chinese restaurant and i have completely fallen in love with this delicious chicken dish which i was planning to make out really since a long, yesterday my DH celebrated his brithday and i thought thats a prefect occasion to prepare  some chinese dishes instead of our usual pulao or briyanis, so i prepared his all time favourite Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice and this sesame chicken, he just loved it...Obivously this sesame chicken goes directly to my own event Cooking With Seeds-Sesame seeds..

2tsp Dark soya sauce
2tsp Sesame Oil for marination
2tsp Sesame oil for sauce
1cup Cornstarch
Oil for deepfrying

Marinate the chicken cubes with dark soya sauce, sesame oil and let them sit for half an hour...mix all the ingredients for sauce and keep aside..

Toss the marinated chicken cubes with cornstarch and deep fry the chicken cubes until they turns golden brown..drain the excess of oil with paper towel...

Heat the sesame oil in a wok, add the dry red chillies, minced ginger and chopped garlic and fry until they turns golden brown , add immediately the sauce mixture and stir in simmer until they get thickens, immediately add the already fried chicken pieces to the sauce and stir well until the chicken pieces get well coated, add the sesame seeds and garlic chives..
