Place the chicken, eggs, garlic paste, refined flour, black pepper and salt in a bowl and mix well. Leave thus for at least an hour.
Lift the pieces and coat with the breadcrumbs and keep aside.
Heat the oil till a piece of bread thrown in comes up at once.
Place as many chicken pieces as come in without touching each other.
Turn once and lower the heat and let fry to a golden and then turn once again till golden on both sides.
Drain on absorbent paper and serve.
Note: In case you want to serve later, fry them for a short while on both sides, not letting them brown, and fry again to a golden color before serving.
