Author's Notes

Tom Yum Paste is already salted, depending on the amount of paste that you use, you have to reduce the amount of fish sauce used, which is also very salty.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Add Fish Sauce (1 tsp), Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp), and Tom Yum Chili Paste (2 Tbsp) to a large bowl with the Bone-In, Skin-On Chicken Legs (2) and mix well.
step 2
Then, add Lemongrass (1/2 Tbsp), Kaffir Lime Leaf (1 tsp), Egg (1), All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 Tbsp), Corn Flour (1 Tbsp), and Oil (1/2 Tbsp). Combine everything together making sure the flour fully coats the chicken. Set aside to marinate for about 3 hours.
step 3
Heat up the Cooking Oil (as needed) in a wok for deep frying. Oil is ready when bubbles appear around a wooden chopstick when immersed in the oil.
step 4
Deep fry the marinated chicken in batches until golden brown and cooked through. Drain the fried chicken on a paper towel. Then transfer to a serving plate.
step 5
Place the fried chicken on a serving plate with steamed rice. Garnish with Onion (1) and top with the juice of a Lime (1). Enjoy!
