Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Vegetable oil- as required for deep frying
  2. chicken thighs, boneless, skinless- 500 gm. cut into 3 cm pieces or long strips
  3. Ginger, grated- 01 tbsp
  4. Garlic, grated- 02 cloves
  5. Light Soy sauce- 02 tbsp
  6. Sake, Japanese rice wine- 1 and ½ tbsp
  7. Grain sugar- 1 and ½ tbsp
  8. potato starch- 130 to150 gm
  9. Finely chopped parsley-04 sprigs, to garnish
  10. Wasabi Mayonnaise Ingredients:
  11. Powdered wasabi- ½ tsp. mixed with ½ tsp. water or Wasabi paste- ½ tsp
  12. lemon juice- ½ tsp
  13. Mayonnaise- 1/3 rd cup


  1. In a glass bowl add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake and sugar and whisk to combine. Add the chicken, then stir to coat evenly.
  2. Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 01 hour. Drain the chicken from the excessive marinade.
  3. Add 1 inch of vegetable oil to a heavy bottomed pot, heat the oil on a medium-high heat (when the oil is ready, a cube of bread turns golden in 20 seconds). Line a wire rack with 02 sheets of paper towels and keep your tongs ready.
  4. Put the potato starch in a bowl. Add a handful of chicken to the potato starch and toss to coat each piece evenly. Shake off the excess of potato starch.
  5. Fry the chicken in batches until medium brown and the chicken is cooked through. Transfer the fried chicken to the paper towel to remove excess of oil.
  6. If you want the chicken to stay crispy longer, cool off the chicken and you can refry the chicken a second time, until it's a little darker color.
  7. To prepare the wasabi mayonnaise, combine the Wasabi mixture / Wasabi paste, lemon juice, and mayonnaise in a small glass bowl, stir well to combine.
  8. Store, covered with cling wrap, in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  9. Serve hot garnished with chopped parsley accompanied with Wasabi Mayonnaise.
