Random enough, one of my FAVORITE Korean deserts is the Goldfish-shaped red-bean-filled bread :)) you can only get it in Korea for some reason, but there's actually a place in ktown in LA that makes it! I get a whole batch every Tues. when I'm there for cello stuff :)
They first pour the batter in both sides of the pans, drop heaping spoon-fulls of sweet red bean filling, and stick both sides together! :)
5 for $3! hehe I usually eat 3 and save the 2 for my mum :p
Anywho! I haven't made a cooking tut in a long time, so here's a quickie! Home-made French Fries! They're much lower in calories home-made than buying them somewhere like McDonalds :) They're super easy to make, and all you need is a potato!
-1 Russet Potato (any size)
-Any type of oil (veg. oil is rec., but anything you have is fine--I used canola oil)
-something to shape/cut the potatoes into fries with! (you could even just use your knife and free-hand it!)
This is the thickest cutter I own, so it's fine :) work with whatever you have lying around! I honestly prefer shoe-string fries anyway :p
I peeled the potato, and ran it through till I couldn't anymore--be REALLY careful! it's super easy to just slice your finger through!!!!! I've done it before T^T A trick using these slicers is to push very lightly and not force it, or it'll get stuck, and you'll end up pushing it even harder--then BAM!! lots blood.
I'm going to use this mini deep-fryer I own, but you can always use a wide-set pan and fill it with 2 inches of oil.
Toss 'em in the rack!
Careful here! Water (from potato) and oil does NOT go together... hell, it'll explode! so make sure you don't put too much potato at once, or it'll overflow =)
Each batch for me takes around 4-7 minutes :) I like to use a wooden chopstick to swirl the potatoes around so they get cooked evenly.
Prepare a large plate with paper towels on the bottom to soak up the excess oils!
Sprinkle them with salt, and you're done! This recipe is great with sweet potatoes too! :) I've tried, and really liked those too! (don't salt those though!)
Hope you enjoyed this cooking tut =) By popular demand, Kimchi Fried Rice will be the next tutorial, following up with a simple fudge tut too!
Have a Friday fun day~!
