I have a previous recipe for tumeric chicken but it was rather confusing to some because I microwave the chicken before frying.Ã‚Â So, I am going to put another recipe which is much simpler.Ã‚Â Since we know that tumeric is good for us, let’s pile on the powder!
I dislike fresh tumeric because it stains the fingers, kitchen top, blender and mortar and pestle.Ã‚Â It is very hard to remove the tumeric stains and one can only do so if we use washing detergents (for clothes).Ã‚Â So, I usually substitute with tumeric powder.
4 chicken thighs
1 small packet of tumeric powder (about 20-30 sen)
Fish sauce – generous dashes
Salt to taste
OilÃ‚Â for deep frying
Season the chicken for several hours.Ã‚Â Deep fry till the chicken are brown.
I normally fry them for a longer time so that the chicken are crispy and dry without the moisture.
If I am making big batches, I will microwave them for about 4 minutes to cook the inner parts of the chicken before frying.Ã‚Â This will save me a lot of cooking time.Ã‚Â Sometimes, I would add fennel and cummin powder.Ã‚Â But when I did not use these, no one notices too. 😛
