Spicy Somali Fried Chicken Recipe

Updated on January 6, 2013
5 stars from 2 ratings of Somali-Fried Chicken

Another delicacy from the horn of africa; I bring you the sacred recipe of fried chicken (chuckle), but with a little somali flavour, or spice, rather. I'm not a particular fan of deep fried foods, but I had to make an exception this time around, and I'm sure you will too. :)

There aren't many differences with somali fried chicken when compared to american fried chicken or any other fried chicken for that matter, but you will find that there is something distinct and exotic about the way this chicken is fried.

Alright then, I shan't waste more time, on to the recipe:
