How to make fried chicken
1. Prepare spices. This method is very easy = by mixing all the ingredients and then mashing them smoothly. Use a blender to make it easier and faster. If you want to use a manual mash tool is better.
2. Boil the chicken first. The aim is that the meat is already cooked before being fried, so the frying time will be short. Without boiling, frying will takes a long time and the outer surface of Chicken meat will be charred.

How to boil
Wash the chicken until clean, boil the coconut milk into the boiled pot. Add chicken and fine spices into it. Cooked with low heat.

Make crispy batter
After the chicken is cooked, remove and drain. Put about 350 ml of the chicken boiled water, then poured into a basin while sprinkled with rice flour, stir until blended.

After that, enter the chicken meat one by one into the mixture, then stir it slowly so that the meat is perfectly covered by the mixture.

Fry the chicken
Prepare a frying pan, turn on the stove with a medium flame. Cooking oil is then poured into a frying pan (the oil volume is enough to make the chicken sink in it). When cooking oil is perfectly hot, put the chicken meat one by one, wait until well cooked ( the color turns to golden yellow). Don’t forget to turn it over, so that it doesn’t burn. After you feel cooked enough, then remove and drain them.

Make the sambal
Mix all sambal ingredients using a blender machine. Be careful while add the sugar and salt, their combination is the most important.

Thus the previous is the correct way to make delicious fried crispy chicken. Make sure you practice it correctly. If there are obstacles in the process, you can send me a comments. Thank you so much.
