Carol’s Thai Style Batter for Chicken or Pork

TRH Carol's Thai Style Batter for Chicken or Pork

Traditionally Thais use rice flour for batter:
1½ cups rice flour.
1 tsp salt.
1 tsp chicken stock granules (If you are coating chicken drums).
1 Cup water + 2 tsp Baking Soda.  (Or you can use a cup of soda water)

For the dry coating, you will need 2 cups of rice flour.
Coat your chicken or pork in the flour, I find it easier to put in a bag and roll it around until all the meat is coated.
Dip your meat in the batter.
Heat oil but don’t overload the wok as it will cause the temperature of the oil to drop and you won’t get crispy chicken/pork.
Sometimes on the street stalls, you will see the cook remove the chicken/pork and then put in another pan(double dipping) to make sure it is crispy.
This is an authentic recipe given to me by our Thai chef when we had our restaurant as are all my Thai recipes.

I have a passion to cook and experiment, and have gathered recipes for almost 50+ years (paper and then electronic). I felt it an absolute waste to just toss all those wonderful recipes in the garbage and forget about them, thus decided to put them to good use and started “The Recipe Hunter” Facebook page: The Recipe Hunter (Cook &Enjoy) and the Blog
