LC batter to fry in?

Thoughts on what is the best low carb count to use for deep frying?
I have tried and doctored all I can soy flour. It just does not stick.


On Netrition there is so many to look at, what do you use?
I want to make fried onion rings, mushrooms and cheese sticks.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!

Are you using an egg to dip in as well? Dip it in the soy flour, then the egg, then back in the soy flour.

I use a half and half mix of pork rind powder and the green can parmesan. I throw in a little garlic powder and italian herbs. Using just egg wash, I dip in the eggs and then the crumb mixture. I love this on chicken breasts. Bake them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Delicious. You might also want to ask this question over in the Recipe Help and Suggestion part of the forums. It might see more traffic and get you a better answer.

I use a combination of flax meal and almond meal. Usually I'll use 1/4c of each which is 2 carbs and add my own seasonings which can be garlic onion and Parmesan. Dip in egg and coat. I use it for fried zuchinni and chicken strips. One of my favorites.

YUM!
I did order about 4 days ago the carbquick finally. I broke down after reading so many posts on it. I have high hopes its what I need. I have been craving fried zuchinni and fried mushrooms, green beans and chicken for so long. Thanks for the tip however

I don't do a lot of deep frying but when I do fry chicken cutlets or sometimes want more crunch to my wings. I use a mix of almond flour and parmesan, season to taste with garlic salt, italian seasonings, chipotle chilli, paprika or whatever you like.

For Almond Flour, although Bob's Red Mills is popular and more readily available in stores, Honeyville is heads and shoulders above it. I have not gone back to Bob's since trying Honeyville

Oh my goodness the carbquick came yesterday, and it is AMAZING! I made fried green beans. WOWSA, I put the fresh green beans in egg and cream mixture and then coated and rolled them in the carbquick mixed with garlic powder and salt. Fried them 58 mins and it was like eatting a french fry! This morning I have already made rolls. Flacky as all can be, I am in love with this flour/bake mix. The ideas are endless.
Just reafirms why I love this WOL and the need to really stick with it and power through.

Sooooo excited!!

1/2 c almond flour
1/4 c parmesan from the green can
1/4 cup crushed bbq flavored pork rinds
a little garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, hot paprika,and cayenne.

I think it sticks better if you dip it in melted butter instead of egg.

I only put a little breader in the bowl at a time. If you start with all of the breader in there it clumps up.. So I bread a couple pieces, then wipe out the bowl and do a couple more.
