I was not too sure what is the best name shall i given to this fried chicken recipe. At last, I decided to call it as Malaysian Lemongrass fried chicken since I use all local herbs especially lemongrass and fresh turmeric are very common in Malaysia. This is my best deep fried chicken recipe, I like to serve this fried chicken in a party (in my son Lucas's 10th Birthday party), and my kids very often requested me to make this fried chicken for them.
This fried chicken is crispy and succulent, there is a secret tip that taught by my mom, add some water when coat with rice flour.
The marinate ingredients-shallots, ginger, fresh turmeric, onion and lemongrass.
Salivate while looking at this? Try it out then, I'm sure you will love this fried chicken.
