I was getting chinese take outs regularly, not cause they tasted good, but simply for the deep fried meat. Eventually it dawned on me I could simply deep fry my own meat, so bought a 15 dollard small frier. You're not gonna make a batch of chips in it, but it's perfect for frying small quantities like 500 grams chicken etc. Up until now I had always been oven cooking meat or shallow/stir frying. Now I deep fry and then transfer the fried meat into a stir fry etc. Pretty life changing. I've basically started recipes I gave up long ago cause they tasted so bland, but with deep fried meat they're like, better than takeout, honestly. Curries, asian style, all that noise. Breaded chicken was made to be deep fried, not oven roasted. Meatballs etc. Anything I'm missing out on in that list that's worth deep frying? .... It's still healthy as required as, all veg etc I still cook normally, steamed rice, but deep fried meat (which is apparently healthier than shallow fried as it seals the outside overall absorbs less fat).
