Crispy Chicken Fingers with Mustard and Ginger

Crispy Chicken FingersNow, this is one of my favorite recipes that are loved by my kids as well. It's a perfect snack for our Sunday tea time party. There are dozens of chicken finger variants that change depending on the local culture and ingredients. Since I live in New Delhi, this one is obviously spiced up with hot Indian spices. You can either use boneless chicken or leg pieces for this recipe. We take it with traditional coriander sauce, but you can replace it with your favorite local dip. If you like this recipe, you may also try a slightly different variant of fish fingers that tastes equally great. Although I've used the regular shallow frying method, you can try grilling or barbecue for a unique taste. You can replace some of the Indian spices mentioned here with their local alternatives.
