Indonesian Fried Chicken With Crumbs (Ayam Goreng Kremes) & Giveaway Result

This fried chicken is extremely yummy. With the additonal yummy crumbs, it's just so finger licking good with a bowl of hot fluffy rice :)
I still need to master how to fry the crumbs properly. Mine was still shattered into small pieces. It should be cumbled together in one piece, thin and crispy with small little holes
It requires lots of cooking oil, right temperature and high level of patience to wait for it to be cooked and the precise time to take it out from the oil
Oh, and also please remember to clear the surrounding area, the oil will splatter everywhere!
As for the chicken, it's pretty straight forward

Recipe is from an Indonesian recipe book: "Masak Mudah & Lezat" by Sisca Soewitomo

Here it is:
(I used pressure cooker to make sure the chicken is soft)

1 free range chicken approximately 1kg, cut into 2parts
1 tbsp juice of a large lime
1 tsp salt
2 salam leaves (Indonesian bay leaves)
2 lime leaves
1/5 litre water
2 stalks of lemongrass, lightly pounded

Blend together:
10 cloves of garlic
8 candlenuts, sliced and fry without oil for awhile
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tbsp salt

For the crumbs:
25g sago flour
25g rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
900ml soup from boiling the chicken

For the chicken:
  1. Wash chicken, brush with mixture of juice of a large lime and salt, leave for 15 minutes, wash and drain
  2. In pressure cooker, boil chicken with salam leaves, lime leaves and lemongrass together with blended ingredients (use function: chicken)
  3. After done, drain chicken, and leave the soup in the pressure cooker pot
  4. In a hot oil, deep fry the chicken til golden brown, drain
For the crumbs:
  1. Mix the chicken soup (while still hot) with sago flour, rice flour and baking powder - stir well
  2. Spoon the mixture in a very hot oil over medium fire, add the mixture one spoonful at a time til the desired amount
  3. Let it cook til golden light brown and holes start to appear, scoop out from the oil and drain
  4. Arrange on top of the fried chicken
*Suggestion for sambal chilli that goes well with this chicken:

6 large red chillis
2 bird's eye chillis (you may add if you like it spicy)
1 tomato, cut small
1 tsp belachan
1/4 tsp salt
a pinch of sugar
1 tbsp oil
  1. Heat oil, fry all ingredients til half cooked, off heat
  2. Mash the mixture with potato masher
  3. Let cool
