Crispy Coconut Curry Chikun

"Chicken nuggets" a bit more jazzed up than usual!

Yields: 2 Servings
Stir together the sauce ingredients and set aside; or chill until ready to serve.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, milk and salt to create a smooth batter. Set aside.

Add the shredded coconut, panko crumbs, curry powder and black pepper to a food processor and process into a very coarse flour. Be sure to leave plenty of texture. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Dredge the tenders or nuggets in the batter and then in the coconut crumb mixture until thoroughly coated. Set aside on a plate to dry for about 20 minutes.

Heat a sufficient amount of oil for deep-frying in a deep skillet, wok or deep fryer over medium-high heat.

When the oil begins to shimmer, fry the battered chikun until golden brown. Remove with a spider or slotted spoon to avoid dislodging the crumb coating. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain briefly.

Garnish with the optional Thai basil or cilantro and serve hot with the dipping sauce.


1 Chikun tenders or nuggets ((from the Seitan and Beyond Cookbook))
1 cup Non-dairy milk
2⁄3 cups Rice flour or all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Fine sea salt or kosher salt
2 cups Shredded Coconut (sweetened or unsweetened (your choice))
1 1⁄2 cup Panko crumbs
1 1⁄2 teaspoon Curry powder
1 1⁄2 teaspoon Coarse ground black pepper
  Finely chopped That basil or cilantro for garnish ((optional))
  Cooking oil for deep frying
1 1⁄2 cup Pineapple mango jam or orange marmalade (Dipping Sauce Ingredients)
1 tablespoon Asian chili garlic sauce or sambal oelek, or more to taste (Dipping Sauce Ingredients)

I'm Scott, and I started this site with the intention of creating a central hang out for veg*ns, and as a resource for anybody interested in learning more about vegetarianism. I believe that compassion towards animals and a plant-based lifestyle can go mainstream, and I'm doing my best to help that happen. When I'm not designing and building websites,I love spending time with my friends and family, cooking (trying to at least), watching movies and binge-watching TV shows, and spending time outside. My favorite eateries in the Seattle area are currently Wayward Vegan Cafe, and the No Bones About It food truck. I'm kind of a music fanatic, if you'd like to see what I'm listening to here's my Last.fm profile: http://www.last.fm/user/nombrecinq
