Chef's Tip

Do not overload your pot or pan. Putting in too much lowers the temperature and makes the final product soggy. Also, it might cause the oil to bubble over the pot. Use peanut oil, canola or vegetable oil. Fry as close to meal time as possible. Never salt food over oil as salt destroys the oil.
