  • To check if the oil is hot enough,if you drop a little batter in the oil it should rise immediately and not sink.

  • Always fry the chicken on medium heat to ensure even cooking or else the chicken may be raw inside.

  • Once you add the club soda to the batter the batter will turn frothy,immediately add the chicken pieces,mix well and start frying.

  • Do not make the batter and let it rest and after some time fry the chicken.This will not make the chicken fluffy and airy.
