Fried Water: Have you ever tried this vegan food trend?

One odd food trend that caused a stir on social media last year was the fried water trend. Yes, you read that right! The food trend is to fry water – just like your samosas, papads, or bhajiyas!

the tendency which caught the internet’s attention in 2016, is still one of the most popular.

Notably, it was first introduced by YouTuber and Chef Jonathan Marcus where he used flour, eggs, and panko crumbs and fried 12 globs to coat and fry the water. The strange experiment did not work. But in December 2020, the man behind ‘The Action Lab’ YouTube channel James Orgill tried frying the water and got it right on the first try.

Ashish Singh, Business Manager, Cafe Delhi Heights / Dhansoo / Nueva said that the concept stems from molecular gastronomy, a discipline that brings together chemistry and physics in the concept of cooking to understand how a dish is made.

“We fry normal water after it has been coated with a salt / chemical called sodium alginate. The surface layer of water takes on a gelatinous texture, and then it is fried. The water and sodium alginate do not contain any animal products, which is why he becomes vegan, ”he explained.

Calcium alginate, the chemical compound similar to gelatin, is made from aqueous calcium chloride and sodium alginate, which help convert ordinary water into an edible liquid membrane, in which water is filled and fried.

While the experiment may seem harmless, food experts say it’s best to avoid since any leakage in the blood cell can throw boiling oil at you, as the oil and water do not dissolve. not mix.
