Technique: Deep Frying
This method or technique is very popular in the Fast Food industry. The food to be cooked must be fully submerged in hot fat. Good quality deep-fried foods can be characterized by an attractive golden brown color, crisp surface or coating and little fat absorption or moisture loss.
For best results foods such as chicken should first be breaded or dipped in batter before frying. This coating protects the food as it cooks and results in a nice crispness, golden color and flavor.
