Korean fried chicken

I am fascinated by the Korean cuisine and the inspiration is my daughters love for K-pop followed by Korean Drama, Korean language and Korean food. Its an established story that children are the decision makers in the family and she made me fall in love with Korean food and Korean fried chicken is one of them. Authentically prepared with Gochujang paste which is a spicy paste prepared with Korean chilies Gochugaru which is made from sun dried Korean peppers without seeds.

In the absence of Gochujang paste I prepared a paste of local chilies by boiling them in water, deseeding them and making a paste.

What is different about Korean fried chicken?

Korean fried chicken is extra crispy as it is fried twice and the batter contains a mixture of rice and refined flour which makes the coating super crunchy.

Why do you soak chicken in milk before frying?

Chicken can be soaked with milk or buttermilk overnight to make it tender. The milk contains lactase and the buttermilk contains casein which tenderizes the meat.

What do you eat Korean fried chicken with?

You can serve with fresh salads, picked vegetables and fried rice.
