  3. Now take the chicken strips one by one and dip in egg white and then coat them in all-purpose flour.
  4. Next shallow or deep fry them in oil for 6-8 minutes in low heat till they turn golden brown.
  5. Then take another pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil, and add the chopped garlic, onions, and bell peppers and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Now add 2 teaspoons of chili powder, soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon vinegar.
  7. Next, add the tomato ketchup and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Mix 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour with 1/4th cup of water and add it to the mixture.

  10. Keep stirring till the chicken is coated completely.
  11. Serve on a tray and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

Feel free to use cornstarch instead of flour to thicken the sauce.

I recommend using organic ketchup. Regular ketchup contains high fructose corn syrup that I like to avoid.

Toasting the sesame seeds ahead of time makes them taste beautifully nutty and delicious!
