Basic Deep-frying tips to keep in mind
Life is better with Twinkies but only if fried right. There are no such strict rules to follow but some basic tips might help you with a perfect snack on a beautiful evening. Some of the deep-frying tips are:
- Pick the frying oil wisely, best recommended is Vegetable oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil or canola oil as all of these have “high-smoke point.”
- Choose the right pot. Use wok or heavy-bottomed dutch because they are deep and eliminates chances of spilling.
- Try preparing smooth batter, it shouldn’t be too thick or too thin. Twinkies should be properly dipped in the batter and it should stay.
- Say no to overcrowding. Do not put too many Twinkies in a single batch as all of them will stick to each other and screw your recipe.
- Now this is the most important, do not get too excited and put hot Twinkies in your mouth, you’ll eventually burn your mouth. XD!
