Ahhh... chicken, the staple food of Malaysians as Malaysia has one of the highest per capita consumption rates in the world for chicken. Its truly a wonder how we never get tired of eating them... I guess it's due to the many ways we cook it.

Anyways as the holidays are just around the corner... I'm sure a lot of hosting will be done at home or potluck to attend, thus I'm sharing this easy to prepare recipe which will surely be snapped up upon serving. If you are considering preparing for more people, just multiply the ingredient accordingly and to taste.

4 pcs Chicken Wings / Drumsticks
Oil for Deep-Frying

Marinade (pounded finely)
5 Shallots
4 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper

1. Combine pounded ingredients with coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt and pepper.
2. Rub marinade all over the chicken and leave aside for at least 1 hr.
3. Heat oil in a wok over medium heat.
4. Deep-fry the marinated chicken for 4 mins or until crispy and golden brown.
