Malam ni I nak cerita a bit about the Tefal Actifry.
We love it so much!
But so far we’ve only used it to ‘fry’ chicken wings, drumsticks, french fries, potato nuggets, thicker-style chips/fries and fish steaks.
We are still at the learning stage of finding out what’s best to be cooked in it and how much we can put in it so it cooks perfectly.
I still have loads of recipes to try in the actifry.
Nanti bila my in laws datang, boleh lah we all guna hari2 kan .
Drumsticks and wings cooked in it perfectly, exactly like fried chicken.
But so far we’ve only tried the uncrumbed chicken pieces.
Cuma bubuh some spices and salt on the chicken pieces and about a teaspoon of oil and cook it to your liking.
We like our fried chicken garing so we cooked them around 20-25 minutes.
Macam ni lah rupa the actifry fried chicken drumsticks.
Serupa mcm goreng kan!
We tried cooking fish steaks as well in it. I used mackerel steaks and some broke apart and some stayed intact.
So I guess it depends on how thick the steak is and how ‘fragile’ the fish is.
If you want to make fish sambal, I guess it doesnt matter that much if the fish breaks a bit.
But kalau nak plate up seketul fish mcm tu, maybe still kena goreng or kena bakar dlm oven lah.
We also tried different style of fries/chips in it.
If you use chunky style cuts or hometyle frozen chips, they do tend to break a bit. And you definitely cannot put a kilogram of chips in it.
From the info on the net, it says most probably because it has a high moisture content so tu yg cepat pecah.
So, try to reduce to amount you cook each time so it doesnt break that much.
Potato nuggets/ potato gems are quite difficult to cook in it.
You have to separate each frozen nugget before you put them in the actifry. Or else, they clump together and get really mushy!
Even then, they still stick to each other a bit and get mashed a bit.
And maximum quantity is 500g/batch.
French fries however cook perfectly well in it. And it doesnt take long either.
They are so crisp just like fried . Memang boleh makan berguni2 lah tanpa rasa guilty, hahahaha…..
The best thing about actifry ni is that takde lah minyak memercik2 kat atas stove and the bench tu which makes life so easy…..
Ayam goreng kat atas tu I guna untuk dinner nasi lemak tonite.
I rindu sangat2 nak makan nasi lemak ada kacang tanah goreng! hehehe….
Nasi lemak ni salah satu makanan kegemaran The Other Half tu yang slalu jugak lah I buat.
