If you have tasted Al Baik fried chicken then i’m sure you are going to love this recipe because it tastes very similar 🙂
Chicken – 1 full cut in 8 pieces (with or without skin as you prefer)
Lemon juice – 4 tbsp
Corn flour – 1 cup
Eggs – 2 medium sized
White flour – 2 cups
Salt – 2 tbsp or to taste
Olive oil – 4 tbsp
Red chili powder – 4 tbsp
Garlic powder – 2 tbsp
Cinnamon powder – 1/2 tsp
Red color – 1/2 tsp (optional)
Ginger powder – 1 tbsp
COOKING METHOD :
In a large bowl add chili powder 2 tbsp, garlic powder 1 tbsp, salt 1 tbsp, Ginger powder 1/2 tbsp, Olive oil 2 tbsp, Cinnamon powder 1/4 tsp, lemon juice 2 tbsp. Mix them well together and coat chicken in it. Keep this marinated chicken covered on your kitchen counter for about 3 hours. (if the weather is very hot then you can keep it in fridge otherwise no need).
Now in a separate bowl mix together food color, olive oil 2 tbsp, chili powder 2 tbsp, salt 1 tbsp, lemon juice 2 tbsp, cinnamon powder 1/4 tsp, garlic powder 1 tbsp, ginger powder 1/2 tbsp. Once the chicken is marinated for 3 hours, fill this mixture in a kitchen syringe or any normal big sized syringe (without needle) and press it deep inside the chicken, injecting some mixture into each piece. If you feel that the mixture is a bit thick then add a little more lemon juice or olive oil. Do not use water in the marination. Keep again for some time to settle (about half an hour).
Mix together corn flour and white flour in one bowl. Dip each piece first in whisked egg and then in the flour. If u like extra coating then repeat the coating process. Deep fry the pieces on medium heat. Keep the lid covered while frying so that it cooks well in oil and steam together. Serve hot with french fries.
