Lay the right foundation
An accurate flour pre-dusting is key to a homestyle product with a crispy bite. To get an attractive, crunchy product, it is vital to keep the flour condition consistent and get optimum coverage of the product. That may sound simple, but working with the fine particles of flour is a science of its own.
Maximize the pickup
Tempura batter gives the ideal base for a flawless layer of coating and controls the pickup of breading. The challenge here is again to get optimum coverage of the product. The better the batter coverage, the better the pickup, the better the yield.
Get the authentic look
Homestyle’s textured look is formed as flour breading and batter fold into layers on the surface of the product. The best way to create this effect authentically, is using the gentle tumbling motion of a drum. When the drum rotates, it drops the product from a height, creating a controlled mechanical force. It is this force, combined with the time the product remains in the drum that is essential to building the layers of coating and creating the flaky homestyle texture.
