Title: Ayam Goreng Asam (Indonesia) Piquant Fried Chicken
Categories: Poultry, Main dish
Yield: 6 Servings

1 1/2 Roasting chicken
3 Cloves garlic
1 1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Ground black pepper
1 ts Palm sugar or substitute
2 ts Ground coriander
1/2 ts Ground turmeric
1/3 c Tamarind liquid
Oil for frying

Cut chicken into small serving pieces. Crush garlic with salt to a smooth
paste and combine with pepper, sugar, coriander, cummin, turmeric and
tamarind liquid. Rub over the chicken pieces and leave for 1 hour, or cover
and marinade in refrigerator overnight. Heat enough oil in a large heavy
frying pan to cover base of pan. Take chicken pieces from marinade and
drain on paper towels to get rid of excess moisture. Put pieces into the
frying pan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side, turning
with tongs until golden brown. Reduce heat, cover pan and cook for 10-12
minutes longer, turning pieces half-way through. Drain on absorbent paper
and serve warm.
