HOT & SPICY FRIED CHICKEN
Any time of the day, fried chicken sounds great and appetizing snack for chicken lovers especially the aroma at the time you're frying them. It is a great appetizer or side dish to serve along with main course. It is quite easy to prepare, just require time for marinating, the longer time it takes will make them more tastier.
Using dry chili but chili powder works well too, adjust to suit your taste. If you're using wet blender, kindly add some water to grind. In case the lemon grass is not available at your place, do omit them, this is for fragrance only.
This is my favorite recipe, do you believe that one of my sons can complete them in one sitting. What you need are:
HOT FRIED CHICKEN
12 pieces chicken drumstick/breast
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying
1 in ginger
4 cloves garlic
2 stalk lemon grass
15 dry chili - soak to soften
1 tsp turmeric powder
* Place cleaned chicken, ground ingredients and salt in a bowl. Mix well.
* Marinate for at least 1 hour in a refrigerator.
* Heat the oil, shallow fry the marinated chicken until both sides turn golden brown. Transfer onto plate lined with kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
* Serve hot.
