Chicken in Spicy Soy Sauce

This recipe comes from one of my fellow blogger's mother's diary. She calls it "Black Chicken" as it is fondly christened by this name by her friends and family who have tasted and relished this dish. The world has now indeed become a small place with even recipes getting passed on from one kitchen to the next staying hundreds of miles apart. That day isn't far when people across different nations can enjoy a meal together even while staying miles apart (Not just through Skype though!)

1/2 kg chicken with bones (you can go for only drumsticks as well)
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp ginger-garlic
1 tsp red chilli powder
1-2 tsp good quality garam masala
Salt to taste
1 tsp olive oil

In a bowl, mix everything together except the chicken pieces and oil. Now add the chicken pieces and coat them properly with the marinade. With a fork, prick the chicken pieces and keep aside for 25-30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan and add the chicken pieces along with the marinade. Fry till the juices are well absorbed and the chicken gets fried well. Now sprinkle a little water and cover cook for sometime on a low flame till the chicken is tender. Remove from heat and enjoy with some pulao or fried rice.
