All Round Dry Batter Recipe
See, my daughter and grandkids love eating KFC, Mc Donalds chicken. Why? Only for the coating on the chicken! My daughter would go so far as to nibble on the crispy spicy coating and leave the chicken for ME! Not that I'm complaining bout eating the chicken itself;I wasn't happy about the ingredients in the coating. I just wanted my daughter to eat something without additives, preservatives, chemical compounds etc. So, yours truly decided to create her own seasoning flour. Tried and tried until one afternoon, I served the chicken before my baby and she rewarded me with this gorgeous SMILE :D
1I've put down spices cos it's depends on personal preferance. I use curry powder AND 1 tsp chillie powder cos my daughter likes it really spicy. Instead of curry powder, you may add chillie powder, cayenne pepper (some like HOT!). Or if you like milder stuff, then simply add 1 tsp of oregano or just plain black pepper. And if you can't take the heat, omit spices. Only I would suggest adding 1 tsp of turmeric powder to enhance the colour.
2Decide what you plan to store it in, ie, a sandwich bag, a jar, a tin...whichever. Now into this container, throw in all the ingredients. Close it up, or if a sandwich bag, seal it, and now give it a good shake! SHAKE RATTLE & ROLL it baby!
3VOILA! The all round dry batter is ready for use. How to use? Simply dip the chicken or even vegetables like aubergines, ladies fingers etc in egg, and roll in the flour. All that's left is to fry it in medium hot oil. Its done! And the ease of this floour is that you can make it in bulk and simply store it in the fridge for use anytime. Its so simple and yet creates deliciously crunchy, crispy coating when fried, with no additives, chemicals, preservatives!
