Thai Style Fried Chicken

Chicken and fried or fried and chicken? Seldom because the story the same story. Half-half is chicken free and so, I am lazy to make for one person. Yes, that's me, myself and I. Also, I don't really fancy fried chicken or perhaps, I don't mind when the craving kicks in which is hardly. Even if it does, convenient for me to eat out. But when the family comes over, what else is pleasing for the kids except fried chicken. Kids you know how they love fried chicken (Malaysian spicy fried chicken wings and ayam goreng berempah). Indeed their ultimate food. No wonder KFC is forever packed with kiddos.  

So I fried chicken and I fried a different style - first the Thai paste, then mixed with chicken, simmered, cool down, stored in the fridge and fried up before serving.   

½ chicken – cut into bite sizes
Oil for frying
Lime wedges

Thai paste (blend/process with some water)
1 inch lengkuas/galangal
1 serai/lemongrass
5-6 red chilies
1 inch fresh turmeric/kunyit
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
Salt for taste 
Mix and marinate chicken in Thai paste.
Put in a pan or wok. 
Simmer and cook till paste dries up and chicken is almost cooked.
(If needed, pour a bit of water)
Remove from heat and cool down.
Cover with a lid and store in the fridge.
Fry up before serving and serve with lime wedges.
