Nasi Ayam Kampung goreng (Deep fried Chicken rice)

Nasi Ayam Kampung goreng (Deep fried Chicken and rice)


Usually I buy free range chicken / organic chicken (Ayam Kampung) to make Chinese herbs soup, never thought it can be deep fried till crispy as I thought the meat will be tough and hard after deep fried....


















Until I tried a plate of Nasi Ayam Kampung in a kopitiam ( cafe) near my area, love the crunchy skin and no doubt the meat is still hard but the meat is very flavourful and tasty. No wonder this is a famous Malay dish.

For your information:-
Ayam Kampung - free range chicken
Nasi - rice
goreng - deep fried

I served this with simple butter rice (this time i added more grated carrot, use Jasmine rice and did not add turmeric powder), you can serve this with nasi lemak too.

Looks really good! May I ask what do you for deep-frying? Deep-frying at home scares me! Splatter and loads of used oil.... But who can resist fried food now and then? ;)

I like to cook using not many ingredient and this is someting easy to prepare. Thanks for the info about using grated carrots in rice instead of kunyit. Look like I have to sow some more carrots. Never enough in the kitchen.

How I love this kampung style ayam goreng. Yours are cooked to perfection. Love the golden brown and dropsy skin.

The free range or kampung chicken's flesh may be a tad chewier but the flavour is so much better than battery-farm hens. And your fried version of it looks yummilicious! :D

I heard that if you brine the free range chicken it will be more moist although it will retain it's chewy character.
I was doing some research on the internet about kampung chicken sold in wet markets. I found some interesting stuff that made me freaked out.

Nowdays I'm buying free range green chicken/wheatgrass chicken online direct from the suppliers. I think they're value for money in terms of quality. Like the saying "You are what you eat"
