Craving Ravings//Korean Fried Chicken!!

How many of you are die-hard fans of juicy, succulent chicken whisked in spicy-sweet sauce?Korean fried chicken fans to be more precise! I cooked this beauty today as a family lunch and it was lip-smacking!
This bomber is really simple to prepare and can be served either as an appetizer or a side dish.
Here are the ingredients!
-Chicken (boneless or bone-in)
I used 500g boneless chicken breasts and cut them up in chunks.If you're using bone-in, then this recipe stands good for 5-6 pieces.
-Salt to taste
-1 tsp. ground black pepper
-3 tbsp corn starch powder
-3 tbsp all purpose flour
-2 tbsp rice flour
-1 egg, beaten
-1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
-2 tbsp ketchup
-2 tsp hot sauce
-2 tsp soya sauce
-1 tsp/1.5 tsp brown sugar
-2 tsp. vinegar
-1 tbsp sesame seeds

Method:
1.Mix the salt, pepper, cornstarch,rice flour and all purpose flour in a bowl and the egg wash in another bowl.Coat the chicken pieces in flour,then in the egg wash and in the flour again for a crunchy exterior. Then set aside.

2.Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok for frying. To test if the oil is ready to fry in, dip a part of the batter in the wok and if the oil sizzles, you're good to go!

3.Fry the chicken in small batches to avoid crowding the pan until golden brown (time depends on the size of chicken chunks) and place on a tissue paper to absorb excess oil.

4.To make the sauce, add the sauces, sugar,salt, ginger garlic paste and vinegar together and mix it with the help of a spatula to form a smooth paste. 

5.Let the sauce simmer on a very low flame for about 5-7 minutes.

6.Add the chicken that you'd kept aside into the sauce and let the rich, tangy sauce coat the chicken well.

7.Roast the sesame seeds separately and use them as a garnish on your hot, tantalizing chicken.
Serve hot!
This is the easier version of the classic Korean fried chicken which uses Korean chilli paste and other local taste enhancers, so if you have trouble finding those, make this and you won't be missing out on anything!
The crunchy chicken coating tossed in the firey sauce with a hint of sweetness is an absolute delight to indulge in!
And the humble impact of the sesame seeds is scrumptious!
