Tamarind chicken

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Chicken thighs
4 Chicken drumsticks
⅓ cup Tamarind sauce
2 teaspoons Ground coriander
1 teaspoon Ground turmeric
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons Peanut oil
2 Red chillies, finely chopped
6 Spring onions, finely chopped
Oil for deep frying

1. Remove skin from chicken pieces, place chicken in a pan of water.

Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and cool. 2. Combine tamarind sauce, coriander, turmeric and garlic, add to chicken, toss well to coat. Leave stand at least 2 hours, preferably overnight. 3. Heat peanut oil in a frying pan, add chillies and spring onions, stir-fry over low heat for 3 minutes, set aside. 4. Heat oil for deep frying in a large pan. Cook chicken in three batches on medium heat for 5 minutes, or until chicken is hot and golden brown. Lift out, drain on absorbent paper, keep warm while frying remaining chicken. 5. Serve the chicken pieces with a spoonful of the chilli mixture on the side. NOTE: To tone down the fire still further, choose green chillies instead. HINT: Marinated chicken pieces can be grilled instead of deep fried if preferred. Source: Indonesian Cooking
