potatoe wedges into the oil and deep fry until cooked through. Once cooked remove with care
from oil and set aside on some kitchen towel to take off excess oil.

5. With the oil still at cooking temperature, remove the chicken from the bowl where it has
been marinating in the turmeric and salt mix and add to the coooking oil and deep fry. When
the chicken pieces are cooked through, remove from the cooking oil and set aside on a side
dish on some kitch towel to take off excess oil. DO NOT allow the chicken to become crispy.
Remove the oil from the heat to safety.
