Cooking Batter In Alcohol! Ever Tried Baijiu? It Really Works…

Alcohol In Cooking Batter! Ever Tried Baijiu? It Really Works...

You may at first think it is frivolous to be putting alcohol into batter. But the reason for this is, it does a couple of things, first it dissolves some of the gluten proteins in the flour, stopping the crust from becoming tough.

It also reduces the amount of water that the starch granules can absorb, and it boils off faster than water, so the batter dries out, crisps and browns quickly. The crispness lasts throughout the meal. That is the science behind using alcohol in batter. I don’t know who first discovered this, but let us now enjoy the outcome.
