Ayam Goreng (Fried Chicken) Mamak style and Fried bittergourd

Refer to my earlier dish of Dhal curry, I also cooked Fried chicken Mamak style and fried bittergourd. One of the version of fried chicken we like is Mamak style, I came out with my own version after consulted with my Indian friend and Indian worker in the India grocery shop. Another Indian style of veggie I like is fried bittergourd.


Fried Chicken Mamak style

Chicken 1.5kg (cut into big pieces)

Ingredients for marinate:-

Fish curry powder 2tbsp ( why fish curry powder in fried chicken? Don’t worry, this is the secret ingredient taught by my Indian friend)

Meat curry powder 2tbsp (BABA’s brand)
Red chili powder 1tbsp (BABA’s brand)
Turmeric powder 1/2tbsp (BABA’s brand)
Salt 1tbsp or to taste

Rice flour 4tbsp
Water 2tbsp (secret ingredient too, taught by my mum, as to get moist chicken meat)

1. Marinate chicken with above ingredients for 2 hours.
2. Add rice flour and water to the marinated chicken, mix well.
3. Deep fry chicken on medium heat or until golden brown.
4. Serve hot.


-Fried bittergourd Indian sytle

Fried Bittergourd Indian Style

Salt to taste

Any tip on deep frying , in terms of how many tablespoon oil and how high temperature when you put in the chicken?

Greg said...

I don't know whether this particular fried chicken recipe was meant to go with nasi lemak or not, but my wife and I tried making nasi lemak for her birthday and realized that we had no idea how to fry the chicken. This was some of the best fried chicken we've ever had! Thanks for a great recipe!
