Kangkong Chips Recipe
Alright, let’s do this! Everything that we need for this recipe can be easily bought from the local markets and grocery stores so you don’t have to worry about the availability of the ingredients. Oh, and some people, especially plantitos and plantitas, may have already planted their own Kangkong at home! And finally, the cooking procedures for this recipe are very easy to follow so I’m highly confident that you’ll be able to master this in no time!
Before we begin, let me first list down all of the ingredients we need! Of course, we’ll be needing Kangkong leaves, egg, oil, water, salt, flour, and cornstarch. Don’t forget to add the flour and cornstarch, okay? We’ll be needing both of them for our batter mix.
Now that we’ve got everything that we need for our recipe today, let’s start! The first thing that we need to do is to wash the Kangkong leaves properly and thoroughly. Make sure to remove all the extra dirt and debris from the leaves. Also, detach the leaves from the stem of the Kangkong because we won’t be needing them. Once you’re done cleaning and preparing the Kangkong leaves, set them aside for a while because, in the meantime, we’ll be making the batter mixture!
For the batter mixture, simply combine the cornstarch, flour, egg, salt, and water in a clean mixing bowl. Keep on mixing all of the ingredients well until the consistency becomes smooth and perfect for a batter mix. Alright! Now that everything’s ready, it’s frying time! First, heat the oil on the pan and then gradually adjust the flame to medium. Next, dip the Kangkong leaves into the batter mixture that we made and then deep fry them until crispy. Keep on doing this in batches until you cook all of the kangkong leaves. Then, voila!
You already cooked another delicious snack that’s perfect for all kinds of occasions! It’s better to serve these bad boys while they’re hot. Oh, and you can also add whatever dipping sauce that you like whether it’s ketchup-mayo, hot sauce, or even honey mustard!
