Deep - Fried Tamarind - Marinated Chicken
(Ajam Ungkap)
What You Need:
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup tamarind water
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • A 3- to 3½ -pound chicken, chopped into 12 serving pieces
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a deep bowl, combine the garlic and salt and mash them to a paste with the back of a spoon. Mix in the tamarind water, coriander, sugar and white pepper.

    2. Add the chicken and turn the pieces about with a spoon until they are well coated with the marinade. Marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour at room temperature, or 2 hours in the refrigerator, turning the pieces over occasionally.

    3. Preheat the oven to the lowest setting, then line a large, shallow baking pan with a double thickness of paper towels and place it on the middle shelf of the oven.

    4. Pour about 3 cups of vegetable oil into a 12-inch wok or fill a deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan with oil to a depth of about 3 inches. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature of 375°F on a deep-frying thermometer.

    5. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat it dry with paper towels. Deep-fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time, turning them frequently with tongs or a slotted spoon for about 15 minutes, or until they are crisp and richly browned. As they brown, transfer the chicken pieces to the paper-lined pan and keep warm in the oven while you fry the rest.

    6. Serve immediately. Ajam Ungkap appears as part of the Nasi Kuning Lengkap, but may also be served more simply with plain boiled rice.

    To Serve: 4 to 6 as a main course or 8 as part of nasi kuning lengkap
