What you’ll need

For the Sauce

About the seasoning

This Cánh Gà rán Nước Mắm recipe uses brown sugar for the deeper color and toffee-like sweetness but white sugar will still work well.

For the batter

About the starch

We used corn starch for the coating, but if that’s not readily available then you can substitute it for potato starch or tapioca starch.

There are many substitutes for corn starch, but the one that is often used for the most similar result is potato starch.
