Salted Egg Fried Chicken Recipe

I love the savoury, creamy and granules like taste of salted egg yolk. I have eaten salted egg crab but not salted egg chicken. Salted egg crab has butter and cheese as some of the ingredients but the salted chicken recipe I experimented with is without these two. Anyway, my son loves the Salted Egg Fried Chicken, so I guess this recipe must have turned out ok! LOL!

Chicken, ½ bird, cut into small pieces
Flour Mixture, ½ cup of
Wheat Flour, ½ cup of
Rice Flour and ½ cup of corn flour
Curry Powder, 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves, 3 sprigs
Pepper, ½ teaspoon
Salted Egg, 1 pc
Baking soda, ½ teaspoon
Salt to taste (use sparingly, salted eggs are already very salty)

Put curry powder, baking soda, salt and pepper into the flour mixture. Separate the salted egg yolk from the egg white. Break the egg yolk into small pieces and mix with the flour. Dip the chicken in the salted egg white and coat it with flour mixture. Put curry leaves in hot oil. Deep fry the chicken in the hot oil until golden brown. Serve while still crispy and hot.

wow, another good try^^
salted egg chicken seems very nice~

smallkucing : 1 teaspoon very little only, wont' be spicy but you can opt out from using it because the curry leaves in oil would give it the same aroma. You can replace the curry powder with ketumbar and jintan putih powder.

Cleff : Smallkucing Si Tau Poh, hubby always bring her out lucky leh!

Love2cook : He he, my favourite too

Wenn: Quite effective way to get the fragrant.

Sonia : Oh, normally man would like fried food..., ladies go for more healthy stuff

Xjion89 : ha ha, nice because salty....LOL!

hi pete,

"Dip the chicken in the salted egg white and coat it with flour mixture." - i don't understand... isn't the egg white boiled and in solid form? how to dip the chicken in it?

sorry i know it's a silly question :S


Pete said...

Hi Jess,
The salted egg white will only turned solid if you boil it. Unboiled salted eggs white are in liquid form.


jess_me said...

hi pete thanks for your reply!

ok so the egg white is meant to be liquid/unboiled... but what about the yolk? from the description it sounds like the yolk should be solid..

sorry i know i am so confused! :S

Pete said...

Hi Jess, yes salted egg yolk is hard even if we did not boil it. Just break it into pieces using a fork....the salty grainy texture taste really nice on fried chicken or other fried food.
