Crispy Pata

The last time I cooked this dish was when hubby and I were looking for mini portables, but we end up buying a second-hand laptop instead. Anyway, Crispy Pata (deep-fried pig’s leg) is easy to cook.

You need the following:

Whole pig’s leg (pata), water, pepper corn, salt, bay leaves, vetsin, fish sauce (patis), flour, oil.


Thoroughly wash pata. Place in a cooking pot with water. Add in salt and vetsin, peppercorn and bay leaves. Cover and cook until tender. Let it dry for a while before deep-frying. Before frying, rubbed it with patis and flour. Cooked in medium heat until it becomes crunchy. Best served with steamed rice and yummy dipping sauce.

Dipping sauce: vinegar, soy sauce, a pinch of sugar, chopped garlic and siling labuyo.
