Have you heard about this interesting salt?
While surfing through Facebook a few days ago, we came across a post about how Australians use chicken salt on their French fries and other munchies. Naturally, this perplexed us, so we looked into it. What makes this salt so special?
Australia, which is known for its beaches, deserts, and animals. Of course, their cuisine is excellent Their roasted lambs, seafood, and tarts are well-known all over the world. As a result, it's only logical that chicken salt was created there as well. It's a chicken-based salt that almost goes into every dish; it's also known as Australia's hidden umami bomb.
Peter Brinkworth created it in the 1970s when he was looking for a unique way to season his roast chicken. After that, word of this salt's recipe spread, and practically everyone in Australia switched to chicken salt instead of regular table salt. They began seasoning everything from chips to chicken with it.
Many folks from other nations were taken aback by this idea since, let's face it, we'd never heard of chicken salt before. In our meals and chips, we all use regular table salt or rock salt.It comes as no surprise that adding chicken salt to a dish enhances the flavour.
It is made using the chicken skin that has been roasted and dried, then blended with dehydrated mushroom powder. Other seasonings and spices, such as sea salt, chilli powder, white pepper, onion, and garlic powder, are then added to the mix to improve the flavour. Although this salt is regularly offered in jars in Australian stores, some people prefer to prepare it at home.
Given the growing number of vegans, producers began manufacturing a vegan option by substituting chicken flavouring for actual dry chicken flakes. However, the chicken remains in the original recipe.
You may simply make your own jar of chicken salt at home, even if you can't find it in Indian markets right now.
• Table salt, 6 tbsp
• 4 tbsp stock (chicken)
• 2 tablespoon of garlic powder
• 3 tablespoons paprika
• 1 teaspoon of white pepper
• 1 teaspoon powdered onion
Use an electric blender to combine these items and season everything from chips to gravies to roasted foods. It's also quite simple to prepare and store. Make sure to always store in an air-tight container.
