  1. In a bowl mix thoroughly eggs and fish sauce.
  2. Add chicken in the egg mixture and pierce chicken pieces with fork. Cover the bowl and marinate it for at least 6 hrs.
  3. In a bowl with cover, mix flour, cornstarch, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and salt.
  4. Add the chicken 1 piece at a time and cover the bowl, then shake. This will cover the chicken with the flour mixture.
  5. Heat up oil in a pressure cooker or any heavy pot with a good heavy lid.
  6. Once the oil is hot bring down the heat to medium and add chicken pieces one at a time. Cover the pot and let it deep fry for 8-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken meat.
  7. Serve hot with chicken gravy or tomato ketchup.
Don't attempt to try this at home if you are using a pressure cooker and haven't read the manual and understand what your pressure cooker can do, it can be dangerous pressure frying it in a non commercial pressure fryer.
