Ingredients: 10 wings/drummettes

Chicken wings, drumettes
about 10
Grated garlic
1 tablespoon
Grated ginger
1 tablespoon
Katakuriko
as needed
Egg
1
Salt and pepper
to taste
Gochujang
1/2 tablespoon
Chili sauce
2 tablespoons
Honey or sugar
1 tablespoon
White stalk of Japanese leek (minced)
2 tablespoons
Sake
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
to taste
Frying oil
as needed

Steps

1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then coat in grated garlic and ginger.
2. Lightly remove the garlic and ginger. Soak the chicken in a beaten egg, sprinkle on katakuriko, then deep fry.
3. To check the temperature of the oil, drop the batter into the oil. It's the right temperature if it first sinks, then immediately rises to the top. Deep fry for about 8 minutes over low-medium heat.
4. After 8 minutes, remove the chicken from the oil, then drain for 3 minutes to cook in residual heat.
5. Next, deep fry the chicken in hotter oil. Remove from the oil after they turn a nice golden brown. This will make the outside light and crisp.
6. Combine all of the ingredients listed from the gochujang to sake, and heat. Simmer it to blend the flavors, then turn off the heat.
7. Don't boil the sauce. If adding sugar, I recommend adding more sake. Evaporate the alcohol, if so desired.
8. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Coat the fried chicken in the sauce.
9. They're ready to be served!
