Cheers! So Tony and I have been together for almost 15 years now and the third one in the relationship has always been food.
We are both true non-vegetarians and that's something we bond over.
Tony is a true foodie because he eats, cooks, make others eat and he loves cooking.
And lucky for me he is really good at it.
The salt is high.
What should I say about Sonali? She cooks food but she is a very experimental cook but she makes it well.
So these days we have been at home and cooking together.
It's been fun but we really miss going out sometimes.
And we even miss the things that we used to take for granted like KFC chicken.
So today we decided to make fried chicken at home and compare it to the KFC Chicken.
And we are gonna judge it based on four things- price, time and effort, taste and calories.
So today's video is KFC v/s HFC – Kentucky Fried Chicken V/S Home Fried Chicken.
I was thinking we can cook but if we make at home how much will it cost? Because a lot of people crib that KFC is so expensive and it costs 300 rs for 4 pieces of chicken.
We can buy a whole chicken at that price is what people have been saying.
So let's see.
I think it should be cheaper.
To make it at home? Yup! Okay let's see.
Order the boneless one because it will be better.
Both of them have the same price.
Now we have ordered the chicken.
KFC chicken costs 350 bucks for 4 pieces and 500 for an 8 piece bucket.
Now what we spent was just 250 rupees to buy 500 grams of chicken.
500 grams of chicken would be roughly around 4 pieces of KFC chicken.
How many pieces will be there in 500 grams? 500 grams is enough for both of us.
Apart from that the rest of the ingredients have not been considered in this amount because these things are easily available at home.
Yes they are available at home.
Like the chilly powder, salt, pepper, coriander powder, cornflour and dhaniya we have in our house.
While we are waiting for the chicken to get delivered.
And whatever the recipe is can we add rum to that? You can put rum in anything.
If you could.
Rum in rice and rum in dal.
I gave this rum T-shirt to him.
I bought it.
So I would say price wise Home fried chicken wins and KFC loses.
How is KFC chicken made? KFC has answered that our fresh chicken is carefully hand-breaded and rolled 7 times.
7 times? I could fall asleep by reading about it, is it really 7 times? I don't have all this, we don't have canola oil.
What's that? Which oil do we have that we can use? We have sunflower oil.
It looks simple enough.
It's just buttermilk, eggs and the only herb they used is rosemary.
But Sonali doesn't follow any recipes ever.
Sonali always does her own things.
So I am gonna add more spices.
Not spices, I will add more herbs.
Tony plays safe so he always follows the recipe carefully.
But I am rebel cook.
I will do my own thing.
I try to do different stuff but mostly with desi dishes.
I am making KFC for the first time so I don't want to experiment much.
Darling, there's fun in experimentation.
Let's prepare the ingredients, let's start.
You look very excited.
Yes! Hi Baba! Hello, how are you? What's up? Hi Tony! So Baba is gonna help us shoot the video because he is good with a camera and I am really bad at this and Tony knows nothing.
Ingredients are eggs, ginger garlic, lemon, cardamom, lot of spices, milk and chicken.
Put 3 cups.
Now I have to put lemon juice in it and wait for 5 minutes.
If the milk didn't turn into buttermilk then we are screwed.
Then you have to run and get buttermilk.
I was saying that we should buy it but you said that we'll make at home.
The homemade had better texture in the video.
Buttermilk is finally done after the longest 5 minutes of my life.
They have used rosemary as herbs but I don't listen to anyone.
Salt and pepper is the last thing to add.
We have no time for the secret ingredient but it's time to show the magic of hands.
This marinate is finally done.
Now I will start putting the chicken in it.
Everything was right except that we added 1 more cup of milk because you said so and now I am furious.
Now time to put this in the fridge.
I am hungry.
We have a lot of time left.
4 hours later.
Finally, the marinate is done.
And we have to keep it for half an hour more.
4 hours! So now you will make the dry mixture.
We have to add garlic powder and it is my favourite thing.
This man is almost drunk so I have no expectations from him.
Because he was doing this.
Can we eat it raw? It smells so good.
It is the third time right? This is the third time and we have to do it 7 times.
Every time you do this then you have to dip it in cold water so that the flour sticks on it.
And then go back again.
Look at this beautiful piece of chicken that is ready to go in the frier.
Cheers! The first one is going in.
Can you see how beautiful that is and Tony has put the one which I prepared because he doesn't trust himself.
How are you feeling? I am very hungry, please don't ask me more question and I will eat this as soon as it is done.
What about your love for your wife? There are two pieces you can have the other one.
Hello, what are you doing? I am checking if it is cooked till inside.
Can you be patient? Cooking is all about patience.
This is a small piece can I eat? That hurts.
One thing that people do and we should never do is leaving the kitchen alone when you are frying something.
Never ever do that.
Be in the kitchen, stick with it no matter how long it takes maybe an hour or two but stick with it till it's done.
The time taken and the effort.
KFC wins in the effort because we took a lot of time.
First in the research, then ordering the chicken and the marination took 4 hours.
But I think if we make it again we won't take this much time because now we know how to do the things.
Things that take time can be done earlier.
If you plan it out properly I think it can be done.
So effort and time-wise KFC wins and HFC loses.
After 10, 000 years of waiting, our chicken is finally done.
And can you see that juicy chicken? I think this looks quite juicy.
Yeah, it's very juicy.
The texture looks really good.
I think we have successfully fried the Kentucky type chicken.
Dude, I really like it so I would give 15 out of 10 for our cooking.
Because I liked it very much what about you? I will be realistic and I will give this 8 on 10.
The Sauf got me off the hook but otherwise, it is good.
So what we will do is that we will make someone taste it and get his/her opinion.
So that it is impartial.
Baba is sitting and was shooting our video the whole day.
He might be really hungry so let's make him eat.
'Baba, come and eat.
Tastes pretty good than the KFC chicken but it has a lot of fennel in it.
The tenderness is the same and I will give it 9 out of 10.
It's yum and you guys need to try this.
YO! Taste-wise we have been successful.
And I would say that we did a better job than KFC when it comes to taste.
KFC is hot and crispy but there's a flavour lacking which was there in our home fried chicken, right? Yes! KFC if you are hiring then we are available.
But we charge a lot just saying.
We are gonna do better tahn you guys.
And good luck looking for the our secret ingredient.
But anyway I think for KFC V/S HFC, the taste we won, right? Which has more calories – KFC or HFC? So basically 4 pieces of KFC hot and crispy will mean around 500gms of chicken.
There are 300 calories in one piece and hence 12000 calories in a bucket of 4 pieces.
But in the HFC, there were a total of 923 calories approx in 500 gms of chicken.
So actually the one we made at home I don't think it's 923 but is actually lesser than that.
Because we did a lot of physical labour.
We were running around all house even while waiting we were not sitting at one place.
I think it's lesser than what you have calculated.
Look at his optimist.
Do you think calories are burnt like by only moving from here to there? Tony thinks if you go from bed to the kitchen you have burnt 10, 000 calories.
My job is done is what he thinks.
I am a Maths student.
So finally the day has come to an end and we were successful? Pretty much! Yeah, pretty much successful but then it took us the whole day.
and I don't understand.
We shouldn't take this much time but the ordering, marination and the waiting took us the whole day.
The marination took most of the time.
So if you want to make fried chicken you have to prepare it a day before.
Bring the chicken, marinate it and wake up the next day and make it.
The making part doesn't take that much time, right? Yeah the frying doesn't take much time.
Frying will take half an hour if you have 5 to 6 pieces.
Or 40 minutes.
But then the prep time is too much.
We are rolling right now.
