Japanese fried chicken or tori no karaage is a fairly simple recipe. It is one of the most valued dishes in Japanese gastronomy. It is usually eaten as a main dish accompanied by a salad or white rice or it is also eaten as an aperitif.
But do not panic, do not think that because it has the tag “Japanese” you will have to go through all the Asian food stores to find the ingredients, because it is not like that, since to make this Japanese-style fried chicken you are only going to use ingredients that you surely have at home and if you don’t have them in the pantry you can find them in any store.
If you want to have a different tapas, I recommend that you prepare it because you are going to get a great surprise.
