Ayam Goreng Berempah (Malay Spiced Fried Chicken) 马来炸鸡


I love this type of Malay fried chicken, full of herbs and spices, so aromatic! Whenever I attending Malay wedding, I am sure looking forward to taste this Ayam goring berempah. Yesterday I prepared this chicken to go with nasi lemak, yum!









 Do not throw away those fried spiced crumbs, that is the most yummy part !

Feel skeptical to try this at home as I need to buy so many spices that will only use once and keep for long time after that >.<

Tried this recipe and the chicken turned out really moist, aromatic and flavorful with crispy skin. Cooked it with a batch of Nasi lemak and sambal and beef rendang. I added a pinch of sugar to the marinade and I also added some curry leaves halfway during the frying for more fragrance and deep fried the chicken twice to maintain the crispiness. Will make it again the next time I make Nasi lemak.
