Malaysian Spicy Fried Chicken Wings

I've been told to either totally give up or cut down on chicken wings. While there's a couple of theories behind what's been said, the one that rings the bell loud and clear for me is the high fat content - the skin by itself and fatty tissues attached around the meat. Yes I know its unhealthy but still like always said, as long as we don't go over board, life will not fall apart. So put your guilt aside and try these wings - marinated with Asian herbs, chilli paste and fried for that crispy crunchy skin with tender meat inside.

3 chicken wings - halve at the joints
1 tbsp chilli powder (or as needed)
1 tsp corn flour
1 tsp rice flour
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

To blend/ground
4 shallots
1 inch fresh turmeric/kunyit (or turmeric powder)
1 lemon grass
2 red chillies 
Marinate wings with the blended ingredients and the rest except oil.
Gently poke wings all over with a fork so that the marination will sip through.  
Marinate for at least 4 hours. 
(note; will be good to place wings in the fridge to keep fresh)
Bring out and deep fry.
Drain off excess oil and serve with sour cream/yoghurt (optional) while still piping hot.
