DIRECTIONS

  • Put shallots, garlic, ginger, turmeric, and lemon grass in a blender and process into a paste.
  • Put soy sauce, water, and sugar into a large frying pan. Heat (to help sugar dissolve).
  • 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.
  • Heat enough vegetable oil to deep-fry the chicken. Oil must be VERY hot - almost to the smoke point.
  • Remove chicken thighs, season with salt and pepper, and deep-fry 6-8 minutes until surface is crisp and golden.
  • While deep-frying chicken, heat the remaining water and drippings to thicken. Use this as a dipping sauce for the chicken.
