So exactly what is in mumbo sauce anyway? Great question! There have been many theories as to what ingredients go into making this tasty sauce and if you search Google for ‘mumbo sauce recipe‘ you are sure to find a short list of websites with recipes that seem to come close. But, unless you have a secret inside connection at one of your favorites DC area Chinese carry outs (which we don’t), you’ll never find out.
We here at Capital City Mumbo Sauce aren’t at liberty to share our secret recipe, but we can confirm it contains a tomato sauce base, sugar and a whole lot of LOVE! (photo source)
What do you think is in the secret sauce?
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- About 1 cup hot red pepper sauce (recommended: Texas Pete)
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- House seasoning, recipe follows
- 1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces
- Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil
In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with the house seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
- 1 cup salt
- 1/4 cup black pepper
- 1/4 cup garlic powder
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
