Fried Chicken From Around The World

A broken heart, a depressing day or just a hungry stomach — there’s nothing that a plate of piping hot fried chicken can’t fix. May be that’s our growling tummy speaking but honestly, you tell us — is there any other food that makes you feel SO GOOD about being alive? We think not.

And we’re not alone in our ‘Fried Chicken For All’ slogan. From the US to South Korea to Thailand to Brazil, fried chicken is a favourite in every corner of the world.

See how this cooking wonder is eaten in various parts of the world.

1. Korea

One of those most famous and savoured form of fried chicken is the Korean Style Fried Chicken. It is fried twice to ensure a crispy and crunchy texture. Since the coating is not done by flour, it has a very thin and transparent crush. The crunch is mostly maintained by the chicken skin. It is dressed in a sweet-spicy sauce and flavoured with soy, vinegar, sesame seeds, oil and honey.

2. Brazil

The Brazilian fried chicken, called the "frango a passarinho" is cut into small pieces before being fried or flavoured. The coating is breaded with a mixture of flour or corn starch, making the chunks tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Topped with a mixture of toasted garlic, parsley, olives and olive oil and served with a chilled beer called chope gelada.

Japanese call it, "kara-age or Tatsuta-age." It is a light, non-greasy, and extremely crunchy form of fried chicken as rice flour is used as a base coating before being deep fried. The kara age is marinated with ginger juice, soy sauce, vinegar, Japanese rice wine and mirin, a Japanese sweet rice wine. They are cut into small pieces and topped glazed with sesame seeds and miso mayonnaise dressing.
