Baking Powder Making by Nisha Madhulika Tip. Baking powder is used while making or baking cake, muffins, cookies etc. it looks like white all purpose flour. It has a sour taste.

Baking powder is made after mixing acidic medium (cream of tartar) and starch. Cooking baking powder consist of acidic medium (cream of tartar). It is used in recipes with don’t have savoring flavor. Starch is used in baking powder so that it can be stored as dry ingredient for long.

Baking powder used today has double action. First is when mixed with wet ingredients and second when it comes in contact with heat .i.e. when recipe is placed in oven. Bubbles get bigger and recipe becomes spongier. Due to double action, prepared recipe can be kept for 15 minutes prior to baking.

Recipe to be baked for long stretches of time require baking powder to be used as an ingredient because over exposure to heat baking soda stops working but baking powder keeps on working. This is why we use baking powder in while making cake, muffins and cookies etc.

Watch Fried KFC Chicken Recipes


  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup or 170gm fine bread crumbs
  • 1 Tea Spoon Knorr chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 Tea Spoon salt
  • 1/2 Tea Spoon garlic powder (not salt)
  • 1/4 Tea Spoon onion powder (not salt)
  • 1/2 Tea Spoon paprika
  • 1/3 Tea Spoon Bell Seasoning or pinch ground sage
  • 1 Table Spoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 large cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 Tea Spoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tea Spoon black pepper
  • 1 Table Spoon Wondra flour
  • additional flour for separate pre-coating
  • 5-6 cups non-hydrogenated Crisco or peanut oil
  • 1 frying chicken, cut in pieces



Pour the oil into the pressure fryer or deep pan suitable for frying, and then heat over medium heat to about 360°F.

In a small bowl beat the egg, milk, and soy sauce, then stir in half Tea Spoon Knorr chicken bouillon (save the other 1/2). Put the garlic cloves through a garlic press and add into the egg mixture. Add half of the parsley and 1 Table Spoon Wondra flour. Stir well.

In a separate bowl, combine the 1 cup flour and the bread crumbs, and the remaining ingredients. Mix well with a fork.

Put about half cup additional flour in a separate small bowl. Use this to dip each chicken piece, prior to dipping in the milk and seasonings.

Roll each piece of chicken around until well covered, first in plain flour, then in milk mixture, then in flour/bread crumbs mixture.

Gently lower the chicken pieces into the hot oil and allow to become a golden color (add the bigger pieces first).

How to Fry Chicken in a Pressure Fryer:

If you are using a pressure fryer, place the lid on and lock it when the chicken is a very light golden color, usually about 3 minutes. Begin timing when the lid is locked and the gauge indicates a pressure of 5-6 pounds (some pressure fryers use a weight rather than a gauge). Bring temperature up immediately and watch carefully (don’t walk away!).

Remove from heat after about 7 minutes and reduce pressure following manufacturer’s directions. Remove the chicken pieces and place on layers of paper towels. Return the pan to the stove and bring temperature back up and continue until all chicken pieces are fried. If your chicken was too brown, cook the next batch for a minute or so less, and vice-versa if your chicken wasn’t browned enough. Do not overload the cooker with too many pieces, as it brings the temperature down too quickly and will cause the pieces to absorb more of the cooking oil than it otherwise would.

Regular Deep Frying:

Fry the chicken at 360-375°F, placing the larger pieces in when the temperature is slightly lower (temperature will drop when pieces are added). Put the smaller pieces in when the temperature is higher, and they will be cooked more quickly. Remove when chicken is golden brown and drain on paper towels.

Cooks Tip: To flavor the oil in this method, you can thickly slice a few large onions and add to the oil before the chicken – skim these out when they are browned, before adding the chicken. It will add an additional layer of flavor to the oil.
