The last few batches I've made came out a little dry. My cooking method is deep frying them in my Fry Daddy for five minutes till golden brown. I just watched a video of this girl pan frying them, and hers were crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside like custard (that's the way they always taste at the Chinese restaurant we go to). Is the Fry Daddy drying them out? I also use canola oil. Should I use a different oil?

Here's the video I referenced:

Don't know but try peanut oil? Good places fry batter fried fish and French fries in peanut oil. I fry them in a pan with a little sugar. Maybe do in your deep fryer for 2-3 minutes then in a frying pan or reverse? Maybe a dip in a batter? Maybe a fluffy egg white batter?

I'd try cooking for a shorter period of time with the oil hotter if you can. My guess is you're overcooking them, drying it out.


Think twice, speak once.

I made my plantains just like the girl in the video said to do it. They absolutely melted in your mouth!

Which oil you use doesn't matter, unless you prefer the taste of one over another. You barely even need any if using a non-stick skillet. To get them crunchy on the outside before dried in the middle, use a higher temperature, or bread them. You could also try thicker slices.
