This is an easy yet yummylicious fried chicken which is supposed to be confinement mothers but it was so delicious [tasty and fragrant] that my whole family [young and old] loves it too.
Try it if you believe me and you will love it. Here, I am sharing the modified version [using less of sesame oil and more of cooking oil for the frying]. I supposed you can use cooking oil and omit the sesame oil, it is still good. The original recipe uses 1 cup sesame oil and 1 tbsp pounded fresh tumeric.
