Japanese food will always be one of my family favorite dining out. Whenever we eat Japanese food in a restaurant or sushi bar, my husband almost never forget to order his favorite fried chicken Japanese style. He just seems can’t get enough of Karage. However, I noticed that the taste of Karage in every Japanese restaurant in Sydney never the same. It seems like every restaurant has their own Karage style and taste. One of the sushi bar in Sydney, Sushi Train even has their new flavor of Karage, that is Cajun Karage. I guess I never know the true taste of Karage unless I visit Japan (psst a hidden message for my husband).

Since my husband loves Karage so much, as usual I started to search on the web to find out the best recipe of Karage. I read all the reviews and comments from almost every single Karage recipes that I stumbled upon. This recipe is like a compilation of few Karage recipes that I found. I love the distinct aromatic flavor of the ginger combined with the subtle taste of the soy sauce. The fried chicken came out really crispy without me double frying it.



  • 500 gr chicken thigh fillet, cut into bite size or your preferences
  • 3 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp rice wine
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • corn flour for coating
  • salt and pepper to preferences on the flour
  • oil for frying
  • Japanese mayonnaise for serving


  1. Marinade the chicken with ginger, rice wine and soy sauce for at last 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil.
  3. Coat the marinated chicken in the corn flour. Shake the flour excess.
  4. Fried the chicken until you can feel with the utensil that they are crunchy.
  5. Serve with the Japanese mayonnaise.

Preparation time (minutes): 30

Culinary Tradition: Japanese
