Spicy Fried Chicken

I spoke a little too soon sometime back when I wrote in my blog that eating out in Malaysia is still cheap and affordable. However, this has not been the case since the recent increase in petrol price by 40%. Generally, prices of most goods have gone up quite substantially. For instance a bag of 10kg rice that used to cost RM20 is now close to RM40.

Under such circumstances, we have decided not to eat out so often. Therefore, I am back to my dinner cooking routine again.......(sigh). Will have to comb through all my recipe books for quick and simple dishes to satisfy the hunger of Sydney and hubby who awaits patiently each day for my return to prepare dinner.

Here is one such recipe that I improvise and name it Spicy Fried Chicken.

6 chicken wings
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp curry powder for meat
Oil for deep frying

1. Marinate chicken wings with salt and curry powder for at least half an hour.
2. Heat oil and fry till crispy and chicken wings are cooked.

Note : I used chicken wings as they cook faster than chicken drumstick and I marinate them in the morning before I leave for work.

Your fried chicken looks finger licking good! It must be tired for you to come back from work and cook, but that's the only way to save big, as eating out in M'sia is not cheap.

We too trying to save on eating out (as weekends are my off day), so we pick cheaper place to eat or "tar pao" from the Chinese restaurant.
