Kari Imperial (Fried Chicken with Curry Sauce)

This recipe is not the ordinary chicken curry dish. The chicken is coated with soy sauce and cornstarch first, then fried in cooking oil. After that, it is cooked in a curry sauce. If you are looking for a chicken curry with a twist, then I think this is a great recipe for you. This dish can also be a good rice topping.
