3 coriander roots

1½ tbsp whole white peppercorns

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

2 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp sea salt

1 tbsp dried chilli flakes

1 cup plain flour

Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic, coriander roots and pepper to a rough paste. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the condensed milk, fish sauce, salt, chilli flakes. Mix until well combined. Add the chicken and mix until well combined.


Place flour onto a large tray. Dip chicken pieces into the flour and tap off any excess.


Fill a saucepan or wok to about 1/3 capacity with the vegetable oil. Heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot (325°F or 165°C or when a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles) cook chicken in batches until golden and cooked through (about 7-8 minutes). Drain on paper towel. Transfer to serving plate and sprinkle with chilli slices. Serves with Coconut Sriracha.



  • Chicken can be marinated and used straight away or left to marinate overnight.
