Thai Style Fried Chicken

Fried food is akin magical food (Fried Pineapple Rolls). I think, if I am not mistaken, most of us love crispy fried and eaten asap after being fried, fried dishes (Fish Cutlet, Crispy Fried Okra, Fried Prawn Wanton & Crispy Fried Japanese Tofu). Let's now not even talk about fried chicken, I know is a favourite among kiddos, I might as well include us adults (Cornflakes Chicken Wings). The easiest and quickest way for heartily tucking into fried chicken (Malaysian Fried Chicken Wings & Ayam Goreng Berempah) can't be none but KFC, maybe I should also mention McDonalds. Well known and world eaten, pay and there you have it. But, home made fried chicken is a different level all together. Various ways, various styles, you name it, I am sure many of us foodies will proudly share our recipes. Of course. I ought to be proud too because I have already churned out a good run out of my home mill chicken recipes (Masala Raisin Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, Sweet Spicy Sour Chicken, Braised Chicken Feet, Cashew Nut Masala Chicken & Chicken Curry Potato). 

How about today we try a totally different style fried chicken? Thai Style Fried Chicken? We shall. Now now, stop panicking, I already have the recipe on stand by. I made, family tasted, we can't be any happier than our happy tummies. Home made Thai paste (Mee Siam, Tom Yam Goong & Thai Laksa) mixed into chicken, simmered and cook over low heat till paste dries up, cool down and store in the fridge prior to crispy crunchy frying, or you can immediately fry. Ultimately, Thai Style Fried Chicken is forever ever loved, lovable Thai food pleasure (Thai Fish Style, Thai Papaya Salad & Thai Massaman Lamb Curry).  

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 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.
