Easy korean fried chicken recipe
Before you start, ensure you have all the ingredients mentioned below to make Korean fried chicken.
First of all, wash out all the pieces of chicken nicely and let them dry for a while. Then we will marinate the pieces of chicken with ginger paste, garlic paste, garlic salt, and black pepper for an hour.
Once the process of marination is completed, we will coat the pieces of chicken with cornflour.
To make it crunchy and crispy, we need to fry it twice. So, after adding cornflour, we will fry the pieces of chicken in edible oil. Make sure you fry them over a medium flame.
Fry for 10 to 15 minutes. Then put it aside for 10 minutes. You can notice that the moisture is not completely eliminated from the pieces of chicken.
So we need to fry them for the second time. This time, fry them over a high flame until golden brown.
Take them out carefully and transfer them to the strainer. Now you can notice that the pieces of chicken are completely crispy and crunchy.
Now that the chicken is ready, we will need to prepare the sauce.
For that, heat 2 tbsp sesame oil over medium heat and add ginger and garlic paste. Stir well until garlic turns golden brown.
Then add 1 to 2 tbsp of bechef’s gochujang. Each brand has a different level of spiciness in terms of gochujang. I prefer bechef’s gochujang because it is perfectly spicy and also it is more relevant to Korean cuisine.
To make this little smoky and spicy flavor, we will add 1 tbsp of bechef’s gochugaru.
It is quite essential to balance the heat, so we will add 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of soya sauce. Add 1 tbsp vinegar and tomato sauce in the same amount. Stir well and mix properly for enhancement of the sauce.
We will also add bechef’s garlic salt. Stir for a while and your sauce will be ready to coat the fried chicken pieces.
Add all the pieces of chicken into the sauce and coat well.
Once done, take them out and transfer them to the plate.
To season it, we would add a pinch of sesame seeds and spring onion. And your delicious dish of Korean fried chicken is ready to serve.
Enjoy your dish by pairing it with rice or noodles.
