Crispy Pata (Crispy Fried Pork’s Front Leg)


* 1 Pork's front leg - Pata

* 1 bottle of 7up or Sprite - Soda

* 1 1/2 cups of water

* 1 tbsp. of salt

* 1/2 tsp. of baking soda

* 2 tbsp. Patis (Fish sauce)

* 2 tbsp. of Flour

* Corn oil for frying

Cooking Procedures:

* Clean Pata and slit skin few times without cutting the bone.

* Put in a deep pan with a tight cover, and then add water, 7up and salt. Boil it.

* After 15 minutes, add baking soda. Baking soda will speed up the softening of the pata's skin. If water dries up and the meat is not done yet, add another cup of water. Meat should not be too tender. Drain when done. Place in the refrigerator overnight to dry the skin.

Before you fry it, brush with patis and sprinkle with flour evenly. Deep fry it until crispy and golden brown.

Serve with vinegar with 2 cloves garlic (crushed), salt and pepper to taste and 1 small hot chilli pepper (Siling Labuyo).
