Everything you need to know about Karaage
What is Karaage?
Karaage is a Japanese fried chicken. The chicken is sometimes first marinated with soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and sake. It is then coated in a potato starch coating and fried until crispy.
Why is Karaage different from other fried chicken?
One of the reasons that people love karaage so much is because of the flavor the marinade infuses in the chicken, but also because it is so crispy. The reason for the extra crispiness of karaage can be attributed to the potato starch coating that occurs before frying.
