TO FRY OR NOT TO FRY

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feature -

Ad­mit­tedly, deep-fried foods are tasty. There’s no deny­ing it; on the long­est days, the crisp crunch of let­tuce (no dis­re­spect meant, let­tuce) just doesn’t stand up to the crunch of fried chicken. Still, deep-fried foods are bad in co­pi­ous amounts, be­ing high in fat con­tent as well as be­ing gen­er­ally all-around un­healthy. Thank­fully, our crunch-lov­ing coun­ter­parts have in­vented the air fryer, which pro­vides much of the same plea­sure with­out lay­ing on the pounds How is the air fryer bet­ter for cook­ing? For one, foods cooked in air fry­ers re­quire only a small coat­ing of oil to be­come crisp on the out­side, and ten­der on the in­side. Mod­els and brands dif­fer, but the way an air fryer gen­er­ally works in­volves rapid cir­cu­la­tion of hot air, which cooks your food evenly and with­out ex­cess oil. French fries? Yes, please.
