Today’s episode brings something really exciting. These Deep-Fried Hot Chicken Wings are quicker, easier and better than KFC hot wings. With only 6 ingredients and a super-short 3 minute frying time, you’ll be enjoying these incredibly crispy, golden hot wings in a flash.
  • 3 Tbs Aromat / Aromex / Flavormate
  • 1-6 Tbs Dried chilli flakes
  • 120g Packer Salt & Vinegar chips / crisps
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • 8-10 Whole chicken wings
  1. To start, measure out 3 tablespoons of Aromat. This is also called Aromex, Flavormate and a number of other trade names, depending on where you live.
  2. Measure out 1-6 Tablespoons of dried chilli flakes. One tablespoon will give you a mild burn, with the burn increasing as add extra chilli. The choice is up to you.
  3. You will also need a 120g packet of salt and vinegar potato chips or crisps.
  4. Place the Aromat and chilli flakes in your spice grinder and machine these to a fine powder.
  5. Place the potato crisps in your food processor and pulse them 3 to 4 times until quite fine.
  6. Measure 2 cups of all purpose flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the powder Aromat, dried chilli and crushed potato chips and mix these well to combine.
  7. Put this aside until required.
  8. Crack 4 eggs into another mixing bowl and whisk these briefly and put this aside.
  9. Take 8-10 whole chicken wings. Cut the tips from the wings and discard these.
  10. Slice through the center joint, giving a total of 16-20 winglets.
  11. At this stage, start heating your oil over over high heat with a target temperature of 180c or 350f.
  12. Sprinkle some of the coating over a couple of large platters. This is where the coated wings will rest, and the layer of powder prevents the coating on the wings from sticking to the platters and getting damaged.
  13. Dredge one of the winglets in the powder mixture. Transfer this to the egg and coat it all over. Return the wing to the powder mixture and dredge it well to get a good solid coating. Transfer this to the platter to rest while you continue with the remaining winglets.
  14. By the time you’re finished coating the wings, the oil should be close to reaching 180c.
  15. When it reaches 180c, fry the chicken wings in batches for 3 minutes per batch, until crispy and golden.
  16. Use a slotted spoon to remove the wings from the oil, and continue with the remaining wings.
  17. It is now time to dig in and feast on your amazing crispy fried, golden chicken wings.

How to Make Condensed Milk at Home

How to Make Condensed Milk at Home
Recipe type: Dessert
In our previous episode I spoke about fake condensed milk that is flooding the markets around the world – if you missed it, the link is in the description below. Today I am going to show you how to make your own condensed milk at home using just milk and sugar.
  • 2¼ Cups full cream milk
  • ⅔ Cup White sugar + 1 Tbs
  1. Since most recipes call for condensed milk on can measurements, this recipe will make the exact equivalent of a single can of condensed milk. If you need 2 cans, simply double up the recipe and adjust the timings accordingly.
  2. The added bonus of making your own condensed milk is that it works out at roughly half the price of store-bought condensed milk.
  3. To start, measure out 2 and one quarter cups of full cream milk, and 2 thirds of a cup of sugar plus one tablespoon. You can use any white sugar, however I prefer to use caster sugar as it is highly refined and contains less impurities, resulting in less scum or slag that has to be skimmed from the top of the pot.
  4. Place a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and pour in the milk and sugar. Stir this until the sugar has dissolved. You will know when it is dissolved as the bottom of the pot will be smooth.
  5. At this stage, remove the spatula from the pot and wait until the milk just comes to a gentle simmer around the edges.
  6. Reduce the heat and allow this to simmer gently for 35-40 minutes. The exact timing will depend on what pot you use, your stove, and many other variables.
  7. During this stage it is important not to disturb the milk in any way. Stirring or agitating the milk will knock sugar crystals that form on the edges of the pot back into the mixture, and this will result in a grainy condensed milk.
  8. When the milk has reduced to half of it’s original volume, use a spoon dipped in a little water to skim off any slag or scum.
  9. If the milk coats you spoon and drips off from the spoon like pouring cream, the process is complete.
  10. Remove the pot from the heat and pour the condensed milk through a sieve to strain out any skin and slag that you may have missed with the spoon.
  11. Allow the condensed milk to cool to room temperature before covering and refrigerating. The condensed milk will last for 6 months under refrigeration.
  12. As the condensed milk cools it will thicken dramatically to the consistency of store-bought condensed milk.
  13. And there we have it, silky-smooth creamy condensed milk made right here at home.
  14. That’s it for today folks, please like, subscribe and share, and we’ll see you again real soon.


Beware Fake Condensed Milk – Fake Condensed Milk Imported from Malaysia Will Make Your Recipes Fail!

Beware Fake Condensed Milk - Fake Condensed Milk Imported from Malaysia Will Make Your Recipes Fail!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Universal
Fake Condensed Milk Hi and welcome to episode #648 with Today’s episode is a public awareness episode. Over the festive season, my sister-in-law came to visit. While she was here, she prepared a creamy custard fridge tart. This is a tart that she can make in her sleep. It is super simple, and absolutely fail-proof…. until now that is.
  • Condensed Milk
  1. It seems that a company based in the far east has taken it upon them selves to make fake condensed milk. It can not be used for baking, or any purpose that requires condensed milk as the active ingredient. Fridge tarts will not set, and anything similar is bound to fail.
  2. The product is packaged exactly the same as real condensed milk, however a quick look at the ingredients and all is exposed. The fake product contains sugar, milk powder, not full-cream milk, and refined palm oil. In addition to this it contains a soy based emulsifier, probably lecithin, to bind the water and the oil, and a stabilizer, probably zanthan gum to stop the precipitation of the milk powder in the mixture.
  3. Real condensed milk contains sugar and milk. Here is one of the real brands. As you can see it only contains sugar and full cream milk. Lactose is added in varying quantities, as this varies in every batch of milk. Lactose is the sugar found naturally in milk. Lactose is added in the condensed milk for the purpose of consistency.
  4. On opening a can of this rubbish, there is noticeable difference in color. It is much darker than real condensed milk. It is also noticeably thinner in consistency.
  5. On tasting it, I must say that it is almost as creamy and smooth as condensed milk, however the dairy flavor is almost entirely absent.
  6. If you buy condensed milk to sweeten your coffee or tea, then this might do the job, and it is certainly cheaper than condensed milk, however, if you’re planning any type of baking or candy making, then I would absolutely avoid this product. You will waste much more money on spoiled ingredients than you stand to save by buying it.
  7. In my opinion, the FDA, and similar food control organisations around the world should be doing a better job of stemming the influx of these rubbish products into our countries. In the meantime, if you’re buying condensed milk, read the ingredients… there should be nothing other than full cream milk, sugar and lactose.
  8. That’s it for today folks, please share this with your friends and family, and we’ll see you again real soon.
