The trick to make your fried chicken crispy is to ensure you clean and pat dry your chicken before you start the marinating process. This along with the combination of starch (in this case I am using corn flour), the dry spices (or dry rub which I am using some Indian curry powder and turmeric) and the wet marinate (ground onion, garlic and lemongrass). You are almost guaranteed a crispy, aromatic and beautifully golden brown crust/skin. The trick to make your chicken juicy on the inside is to make sure your oil is hot (at least 185c) and to place your chicken at a high heat for the first 3 - 5 minutes. Then, bring it down to about 165c (for the remaining of 5 - 6 minutes) so it cooks the inside without burning the chicken.
