Now it is chilli chicken from the Central Prison, Poojappura. The sale of chilli chicken made from the prison kitchen will commence on Friday.
A packet of chilli chicken will cost Rs 35, much lower than the market price for the dish. “On the first day, chicken will be used for making chilli chicken. One hundred kilograms of chicken will be used. On the following days, turkey from the turkey farm at Kureepuzha, in Kollam, will be used for making it,” said the Prison Superintendent, B Pradeep.
The prison, which started chapati production on commercial basis one year ago, had a record sale on Wednesday. Around 1,15,000 chapatis were sold out on Wednesday, prison officials said. On Thursday, the number of chapatis sold through various outlets of the prison will reach 1 crore, they added.
The sale of chilli chicken will be inaugurated by cine artistes Indrajith and Lena at a function to be held on the prison premises at noon.
At present, chapati, chicken and vegetable curries are being sold through two outlets, one in front of the Central Prison and the other in front of the Women’s Prison, Attakulangara, and through four mobile selling units.
It was on November 28 that the production of ‘idli’ and ‘sambar’ had started at the special sub-jail, Poojappura.
The sale of idli and curry is being done through the same outlets selling chapati.
