A true classic. Dip the piece of food in a beaten egg and coat it with breadcrumbs before frying. For more consistency and a moisty result, dredge the food with flour between egg and breadcrumbs. If you are looking for a puffier result you can also add some baking powder to the flour or egg. 

Fried croquettes


You can make tempura batter by mixing flour, baking powder, salt, and very cold water. Temperature is the key to this coating technique, so feel free to add ice cubes to the batter for a very crispy result. Other tempura recipes can include egg yolk too. Tempura is used with vegetables, seafood, and fish, mainly.

Extra crispy coating

Coating types

Get an extra crunchy touch with any of these ingredients: cereal, corn flakes, or nuts, like the Spanish fried corn kikos, chips or even, Marie biscuits. In all these cases, you just need to dip food in a beaten egg first and coat it with the chosen ingredient right after. Perfect for meat, with a very original and particular taste.
