Do This With That Stuff

  1. ‘Gather all your ingredients and cookware
  2. On the cutting board, finely chop the mixed vegetables, onion, and green onions, and mince the garlic using the knife
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp salt using the measuring cup set and measuring spoon set
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup water and 1 large beaten egg until well combined
  5. Gradually pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl while whisking continuously to avoid lumps This will form your batter

  7. Heat oil in a large deep frying pan or wok over medium heat for deep frying The oil should be about two inches deep in the pan or wok
  8. Once oil is hot enough (a small drop of batter should sizzle upon contact), use a spoon to scoop up some batter and carefully drop it into the hot oil Repeat this process but do not overcrowd the pan or wok as this can lower the oil temperature too much
  9. Fry each fritter until golden brown on both sides This should take about 3-4 minutes per side Use a pair of tongs or slotted spoon to flip each fritter halfway through frying time for even cooking
  10. Using a slotted spoon or spider strainer, remove each fried fritter from the oil once done cooking
  11. Place each fried fritter onto a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil
  12. Repeat frying process with remaining batter until all fritters are cooked

Our Homemade Filipino Sausage Fritters are packed with an array of flavors from finely chopped mixed vegetables like carrots, peas and corn which add a fresh crunch and vibrant color. The onion and garlic lend a savory depth while green onions provide a subtle sharpness. The star ingredients are the shredded chicken breast and crumbled longganisa (Filipino sausage), offering a delightful meaty contrast to the vegetables. All these ingredients are held together by a simple batter made from all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, water and egg.

Cooking Filipino Fiesta Fritters starts with preparing your ingredients – chopping veggies and mincing garlic finely for an even distribution in each fritter bite. You’ll then create your batter by combining dry ingredients before gradually adding in your wet mixture – this technique ensures no lumps form! Once your batter is ready, you’ll stir in your veggies and meats before deep frying spoonfuls of the mixture until golden brown on both sides – remember not to overcrowd your pan! Perfect frying techniques will give you that crispy exterior while keeping the inside soft and flavorful.
