akien is a particularly distinctive dish in Mauritius, mainly made by people of HChinese origin. From what I have been able to gather, it is a dish of Hakka Chinese origin, an unusual variety of what is commonly known as spring rolls, made even more interesting by the fact that the traditional version does not use wrappers at all. Instead, the filling is shaped into a log, then dipped in batter before being fried for the first time, then again coated in a thinner batter before being fried again. This double coating and frying results in a final product with an exceptional crunch on the outside with a juicy, crunchy and very flavourful filling on the inside.
Mauritian Crispy Chicken Recipe
Crisky Fried Chicken is something seen all over Mauritius, especially when people are gathering for a few drinks. It is simple to make, yet very flavourful and people always go back for seconds. The flavours from the ginger and garlic in addition to the crunchy texture make for a very popular snack.
Good afternoon everyone and Happy Friday! I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather we have been having.
We are back to Brookfield Markets on February 15th and I thought you might like to have a sneak preview of my new breakfast menu :)
