Lockdown 3.0 seems more like the climax of any Netflix series. All I can sense is a ray of hope that ushers utmost positivity. The day seems gloomy enough to take away al the smiles with increasing numbers. Remember, your shield is your own home, so act wisely. I have been cribbing about certain snacking options that are just not possible without visiting the main outlet. KFC is one such delivery chains that offer quality fried chicken in the entire world (or maybe, universe). I know the situation is quite depressing and we are in a nationwide lockdown.

Quarantine-life isn’t easy for most of us, but what if we use this time to hone our cooking skills. Frying something is probably the easiest thing. All you need to do is, put oil and stir. However, with KFC, the saga entails a double-layering process. Lets cook-drool-eat step-by-step with KFC style fried chicken recipe. A crunchy and fleshy affair awaits.
