       Title: Ayam Goreng Asam (Indonesia) Piquant Fried Chicken
  Categories: Poultry, Main dish
       Yield: 6 servings
 
   1 1/2    Roasting chicken
       3    Cloves garlic
   1 1/2 t  Salt
       1 t  Ground black pepper
       1 t  Palm sugar or substitute
       2 t  Ground coriander
     1/2 t  Ground turmeric
     1/3 c  Tamarind liquid
            Oil for frying
 
   Cut chicken into small serving pieces. Crush garlic with salt to a smooth
   paste and combine with pepper, sugar, coriander, cummin, turmeric and
   tamarind liquid. Rub over the chicken pieces and leave for 1 hour, or
   cover and marinade in refrigerator overnight. Heat enough oil in a large
   heavy frying pan to cover base of pan. Take chicken pieces from marinade
   and drain on paper towels to get rid of excess moisture. Put pieces into
   the frying pan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side,
   turning with tongs until golden brown. Reduce heat, cover pan and cook for
   10-12 minutes longer, turning pieces half-way through. Drain on absorbent
   paper and serve warm.
