I am completely aware that in Asia, Mama has a different meaning other than a mother. But suiting this recipe with Mama in the title is me saying I don’t quite care about stereotypes. My mother has made this brand of fried chicken for the longest time, as far as I can remember. And it tastes great every single time she makes it.
- 500g Chicken Wings (or drumsticks)
- 2 Tbsp Ground Ginger
- 2 Tbsp Ground Garlic
- 1 Tbsp Turmeric Powder
- 2 Tsp Cumin Seed Powder
- 1/4 Cup Yoghurt
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt to taste
- Marinate the chicken by combining all the ingredients. Set aside for at least 2 hours, or in the refrigerator overnight. Then, dunk the raw marinated chicken in hot oil (in 2 batches), fry till cooked and golden, about 15 to 20 mins. This will differ in accordance with the cut of meat you're using.
- Serve warm with mayonnaise - yes, dreams do come true.
