My recipe for Karaage ^o^

I've tried to make a recipe for Karaage. I hope you can understand it. xD;;;Of course this is done according to my feeling and taste. Therefore, you can also change the amount of ingredients. ^o^

What do you need for 2 persons (about 6-8 Karaage)

<3 2 chicken legs
<3 2-3  garlic cloves
<3 3 cm ginger
<3 1 tbsp sake (its not that important)
<3 sojasauce
<3 5 tbsp flour
<3 4 tbsp potato starch
<3 vegetable fat / sunflower oil

Lets start! ヾ(^∇^)

<3 First cut the bones out from the legs. Try to cut it out in one piece. You don´t need to cut the skin
     away. Wash the meat.
     Now you can trim a leg up in about 3 to 4 pieces.

<3 Peel the ginger and garlic, then you can rub or cute them. Put this mixture along with the soy   
     sauce and sake in a bowl. Then put the meat also in the bowl and stir it around well, so all the
     meat touch the mixture. 
     Makes sure that there is enough soy sauce, the meat have to be covered. (It does not have to 
looks like a massacre XD

<3 Stay the meat at least an hour in the mixture. Meanwhile you can cook the rice. =3.

<3 Make, in a small pot or in a chip pan, the vegetable fat or oil hot. I prefer to use vegetable oil with
      oil (3:1). Let it get hot.

<3 Meanwhile, put the mixture of flour and potato starch at a plate and turns the meat individually 
     therein. Please be sure that you directly after turning the meat in the flour put these into the hot 
     fat. So it is going to be super crispy.

<3 Cook the meat until it is golden brown. Then let is drain on kitchen paper and 
     serve it whileit is still hot! <3

Kaarage tastes delicious with Mayo (+ soy sauce), lemon or even pure with miso soup and rice.
Enjoy the meal! ヾ(^∇^)

If  some Karaage left you can also use it later for Onigiri! = 3
I am going to post it another time!
