It’s yummier when we see crispy food like fried chicken, Lechon kawali, fish and beef because of it’s being crispy and it’s also easy to eat by the use of hands. It is proven that fast food chains have a lot of customers than restaurant because of the quality of food and therefore, people like to eat dry food.
To prevent meat from splattering,
1. Remove moisture from meat by using paper towels.
2. Before frying you may coat the meat like pork, chicken, beef and fish with flour or cornstarch. Coating acts as a protective shield to make the meat dry and prevent it from its oily.
3. Be careful to move smoothly the meat into the oil.
4. Do not apply Salt before frying. Salt draw moisture to the skin of the meat and disperse flavor.
5. Maintain oil at high temperature to avoid oily food.
6. When fry a meat do not force to cook within one batch and do it at a time to maintain the temperature of the oil.
7. Place the cooked food in wire racks to allow the excess oil. Don’t cover the food.
This technique is really simple to conform. I hope you have a wonderful time preparing your meals.
