Fried Turmeric Chicken

Fried Turmeric Chicken

Adding and omitting certain ingredients completely changes the flavor of a dish. Preparation would be the same but by just add a new ingredient gives a different taste to the dish. Normally one would add ginger garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric - mainly all the Indian spices to marinate chicken and deep or shallow fried. Some even add fresh yogurt to give a sour taste to the chicken. Today I'm going to share a fried chicken dish which is marinated with soy sauce ,coconut milk, juices of shallots,cloves and lemon grass. A favorite fried chicken to be found in many Malay household. I really hope you guys out there would try out this lemony flavorful fried chicken in ur kitchen soon. Til then" happy eating and cooking from taste of Taste of Saras Kitchen.
