My Journey of Natural Leavened

Let's say no to commercial yeast. Thanks to sis for introducing this home baker. Went for class on 1 Aug 2015. Learnt so much bout naturally leavened yeast and starting to fall in love with it. Now I understand why some bakers don't share the recipe or tips. You gotta try on your own. Each starter has its own characteristic and each baker are different. So you gotta try on your own.

Air Fried Marmite Chicken Wings

Seriously, I don't know how to write the recipe for air fried chicken wings. Be it in whichever flavour that I've tested cos I've never measured them. Anyway, based on estimated proportion, here's the things I remember. 

4 wings
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
2 tbsp marmite

1. Cut the wings into half. The drummette and wings part
2. Marinade with the sauces
3. Leave in fridge overnight
4. Bring to room temp, then air fry. I did it 15mins for each side bout 170'C. The last 5 mins i put to max heat so that the colour is darker.
