Thai-Style Fried Chicken
Street Vendor Videos
Leave it to the Thais to create the best fried chicken in the world. This batter perfectly coats your chicken (or vegetables, as we made fried mushrooms and onions that turned out excellent). Simply mix it with water and sugar (see mix below). You really can't go wrong, and it's just excellent batter. We fried drumsticks and breast slices, then used world-famous Thai sweet chile sauce as a dip.
We also prepared this with some added spices to create a "Tom Yum" flavor, which is very delicious, see variant method below.

Method for Thai-Style Fried Chicken
Follow these instructions as they yield better results than what is written on the package:
Combine batter mix with 3/4 cup water, then add 2 teaspoons sugar. Put an inch or so of vegetable oil in a frying pan and heat at medium-high. Fry chicken or vegetables until golden brown, then flip and cook the other side. For chicken, cooking time is about 15 minutes total. Less for vegetables. Serve with Thai sweet chile sauce.
'Tom Yum' Style
Give your fried chicken a delicious, slightly spicy, citrusy Tom Yum flavor. You've never tasted anything like it.
