    Da Huz's Note:

    More flavor and less grease than normal fried chicken! Note that lemon grass stalks may be hard to find... omit if you can't find them, or use a dash of lemon juice (not too much though). We grow our own.

    Serves: 6


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put shallots, garlic, ginger, turmeric, and lemon grass in a blender and process into a paste.
    2. 2
      Put soy sauce, water, and sugar into a large frying pan. Heat (to help sugar dissolve).
    3. 3
      Put chicken thighs in frying pan and cover with paste. Simmer, uncovered, until cooked (20-30 minutes). Turn about halfway through to ensure even cooking.
    4. 4
      Heat enough vegetable oil to deep-fry the chicken. Oil must be VERY hot - almost to the smoke point.
    5. 5
      Remove chicken thighs, season with salt and pepper, and deep-fry 6-8 minutes until surface is crisp and golden.
    6. 6
      While deep-frying chicken, heat the remaining water and drippings to thicken. Use this as a dipping sauce for the chicken.
