|Ayam Goreng Berempah (Oct 2011)|
So, the conclusion for a greedy ol' me is ~ make the street food my home food! It's healthier, hygenic and there's no long queue!
Ayam Goreng Berempah Recipe:
1 chicken (chopped into frying pieces) or 8 drumsticks
A spring of curry leaves
5 cloves of garlic
1 inch of ginger
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp coriander seed
2 tsp fennel seed
1 tbsp tumeric powder
4 tbsp corn flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp Salt
Oil for frying
- Pound shallot, garlic & ginger until it becomes a paste. Add the chili powder, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, tumeric powder and curry leaves into the paste and just give it a light pounding. Alternatively, if you don't like to eat the spices, you could put all the above into a blender & blend until it becomes a paste
- Marinade the chicken pieces and leave in fridge overnight or at least 2 hours.
- Dip the chicken pieces into the beaten egg one by one then dust with cornflour before deepfrying. This should be done just before deepfrying.
- Heat up frying oil and fry the chicken pieces till golden brown. Don't forget to pick up the bits of fried spices. (Those are the best bits!)
