Plastic in Fried food

This is a TRUE STORY ...and also someone told me it happened to her in
Kedah ..Tunjang..I think..

It happened to us too, in PERLIS /Thai market (titi chai kangar..the pasar malam area where they always sell GORENG PISANG/Fried Banana at noon .

My uncle saw them frying GORENG PISANG & they added the STRAWS ( which we use to drink water) and melted them into HOT OIL before frying anything...Thats why, the GORENG PISANG/fried Banana,
GORENG UBI/fried yam..etc all stay very crispy for hours....

And, my uncle could not explain why, and he asked them , they just keep quiet..and then when my uncle told my mom, then we realized this is how to make the foods crispy.. My mom said, be careful of Thailand stuffs too
eg: Crispy Ikan Bilis/fried Bilis fish, Crispy fried onions ..which if u leave in the open air for hours, its still crispy..

Like in CANADA , our place only, we only rain 5-times or less a YEAR. So, if we leave our bread in open air overnight, the next day it will be really crispy or dry because the enviroment here is very dry..
but in Malaysia , it should not happen because there is too much moisture.


The world is changing! I read some news
oh my my... not only the chinese are wicked but everywhere... here the
news comes... I have been to cameron highlands with my family,
It was 3 pm ++ We are hanging around the market area, we saw many hawker
stall doing their business, suddenly something attracted me...
One of the stalls, there was a big wok of oil, there was a half-5-litre
empty plastic oil bottle on it. It's melting slowly in the hot frying
oil... i freaked out, I thought it was an unintentional act by a
7-yr-old girl .... But when I looked closely, I saw a pair of chopsticks
stiring the bottle. Immediately, I asked my family to come and check it
out... At that moment, the parents of the girl who were present, were
looking at us ferociously.

Oh my god... They using melted plastic to fry food... The reason is the fried foods will not soften after sitting out for
sometime due to plastic.
We experimented and did as below:
One without plastic, the food is kind of soft after a while and then add plastic, and fry the same thing once again... It crispier than KFC !!

Please stop eating this hawker's fried food... This is their secret receipe...

Pls Tell to all your friend..
esp from the hawker !.. Try leave it in the open air for hours and see..
