Biscuit Fry

Biscuit Fry

Biscuit fry, a preparation where biscuits are coated in batter and deep-fried, may not offer significant health benefits and can pose potential health risks due to the deep-frying process. While biscuits themselves may contain some nutrients, the frying process often introduces excess calories, saturated fats, and trans fats, which can contribute to weight gain and adverse cardiovascular health. Additionally, deep-frying can lead to the formation of harmful compounds and the loss of some nutrients. Consuming foods prepared through deep-frying regularly is generally discouraged in a health-conscious diet. For those seeking a healthier alternative, choosing baked or air-fried options and being mindful of the overall nutritional composition can contribute to a more balanced and nutritious snack choice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup maida
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tbsp baking soda
  • ½ tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 can (about 8 biscuits) refrigerated biscuit dough

Instructions:

Prepare for dough:

  • Take a bowl, add maida, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pinch of salt. Mix well.
  • Then add butter and milk.

Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (180°C) for about 5 minutes.

Prepare the Biscuits:

  • Open the can of refrigerated biscuit dough.
  • Place the biscuits in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each biscuit.

Air Fry:

  • Lightly coat the tops of the biscuits with cooking spray or brush them with a small amount of melted butter for a golden finish.
  • Place the basket in the air fryer and cook the biscuits at 350°F (180°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Check for Doneness:

  • Check the biscuits halfway through the cooking time to ensure they are cooking evenly. Rotate or flip them if needed.

Serve:

  • Once the biscuits are done, carefully remove them from the air fryer.
  • Serve the biscuits warm and enjoy them with butter, jam, honey, or your favorite toppings.
