Fried Chicken in Garlic Ginger Cekur Sauce

Tried several fried and roast chicken in Thailand. All looks simple yet there is a very unique flavour and taste. I think it is like garlic and ginger. So when I saw this recipe, I gave it a try with some modification. That is I added fresh Cekur roots and leaves. Hmm... this chicken dish has this unique aroma and flavour. 
Verdict – fragrant fried chicken with a unique flavour. There is some gravy in this dish but if fried a little dry, it would be perfect. 
Recipe Source – Yum Yum Magazine No. 78 with modifications

A few fresh cekur leaves – shredded or break into pieces [optional]
