I recalled when I lived in Malaysia I love to get Fried turmeric chicken with mixed rice from Malay's hawker stall.I still can remember the fragrant of freshly fried turmeric chicken smell by just thinking about it.Well to kill my craving I decided to fried turmeric chicken at home since I can't just step out to get fried turmeric chicken at any hawker stall here.Basically I just seasoning this chicken with seasalt,turmeric powder,ground pepper powder,sugar and some ground fresh chili(sambal). I bought pre-cut thigh for this dish but you can use and part of chicken to your preference.If you like turmeric spices flavour this recipe might suit you!
6 pieces chicken thigh,cleaned and washed
2-3 tbsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp sea-salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp ground white pepper powder
1 tbsp finely ground fresh chili(sambal)*optional*
enough oil for deep frying
1:Seasoning cleaned chicken thigh with turmeric,sugar,ground pepper,sea-salt and ground chili in large container for 2-3 hours or longer.
2:Heat oil in fryer or deep skillet at medium high.When oil hot enough,placed chicken into and fry for 20 minutes or until cooked.To check if the thigh is done cooked or not,pierce a chop stick or bamboo stick thoroughly into it.If still have fresh blood fusing out,fry again until cook.Do not overcrowded the fryer.
3:Dish chicken out from fryer and place on a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
