1) Mix plain flour, egg, Mak Tok’s Signature Chilli Paste, a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of evaporated milk in a bowl to create a batter. Add chicken into the batter and coat well.

2) Heat up a wok or deep pan and add oil to it. Fry chicken for 5 minutes on medium heat. Remove, drain and set chicken aside.

3) In a clean wok, add melt butter on low heat and gently fry curry leaves for 30 seconds.
