Ayam Goreng Asam, Tamarind Fried Chicken - "Malaysian Monday 33"



It has been a really crazy week and I was struggling to come up with something exciting for this week's MM post. That was until I found this very simple fried recipe in my little "black book". This is another childhood favourite; I remember quite vividly how we used to fight over the last piece of chicken whenever this was served, try it and you will understand why. If you not a fan of deep frying for whatever reason; simply pan fry chicken pieces for a few minutes on each side and bake in a hot oven until golden. 
P.S Can anyone please tell me how does pre-paid internet works? 



serves 4 as part of a Malaysian meal
you'll need;
1.5 kg of chicken thighs
6 tbs of instant tamarind paste
3 tsp of sugar
2 tsp of salt
2 tbs of light soy
dash of white pepper
peanut oil for frying
sambal kecap to serve



Prepare the marinade in a bowl and set aside.



Trim of excess skin and fat and prick chicken pieces all over using a sharp object.



Marinate chicken with the prepared marinade for at least an hour.



Fry chicken in hot oil until golden and crispy. 



Drain well and serve immediately as part of a Malaysian meal. 


I also made a large pot of sayur lodeh  (Malaysian vegetable curry) and served the fried chicken with some delicious sambal kecap.
