Fried Chicken

In the late 80's My sister and I with our partners went to Kerala. We were in fort Kochi and it was a hot afternoon. We were hungry, tired and generally irritable. We went to a restaurent and ordered food. If you are used to the Malaysian lifestyle, you never have to wait for food more than 1o mints.. We waited more than 45 mints and still no sign of food, by then my matsalleh brother in law looked very much like a grilled lobster. The only thing we could do was to leave the restaurent before he did something nasty and look for food elsewhere. As we came out we saw this small tuck shop and they were selling fried chicken. We didn't waste time and within a few mints, my lobster look alike matsalleh brother in law cooled down and he enjoyed the chicken. the lady who made the chicken was impressed to see a white guy devouring the spicy chicken and she gave us the recipe. her name is Jameela..lives some where in fort Kochi.
