Retina pixta 3122975 s
Japanese fried chicken is called "karaage" in Japanese. Karaage is actually a type of frying method and many ingredients can be used, such as burdock root and fish.

So what's the big difference between karaage and fried chicken?
Well, it's basically the way it is seasoned. Kaarage is marinated and then coated with flour and fried. However, fried chicken is deep-fried and then seasoned.
The marinating process gives the chicken a deeper flavor with a nice "umami".
Would you like to try it at home too? Check out the recipe below!

-1 clove of garlic finely chopped
-1 tbsp of soy sauce
