CRIZ BON APPETITE

Savoring The Best All Over Town…

During the recent Fathers’ Day celebration this year, I was given a task to come out with some recipes which would make Dad’s special day very memorable. Instead of sticking to those “quite norm” to me recipes, I had decided to create my own. Thus, you have the DEEP FRIED TURMERIC CHICKEN WITH JACKFRUITS (菠蘿蜜薑黃炸雞). The dish was a hit as it had some unique fruity flavors from the added jackfruits. Combined with the mildly sweet and sour sauce from my own concoction, it sure boosted up everyone’s appetite.

This recipe is quite versatile as you could always replace the meat with pork chop or beef slices. Moreover, due to the availability of jackfruits in certain countries, there are other alternative fruits to use such as ripe pineapples, young mangoes, green apples, dragon fruits, orange slices, etc.
