How to make your own gravy?
Since I was a kid, I loved gravy very much. I’m one of those crazy people who will sip down gravies from Mc. Donalds and KFC that will make the store unable to earn. lol! Since then, I tried my best to create my own gravy. Being a kid, at first, I thought that the color of the gravy came from brown sugar, making my own version sweet, like those of the fish ball sauce.
But, as time goes by, I asked lots of people and to found out that the color only came from soy sauce! Damn! After that, I am able to produce fair tasting gravy and little by little I made it to the blockbuster (for me) side. Every time I cook fried chicken, expect gravy on the side.
Here are the ingredients to make this sauce:
- 3/4 cup flour
- 5 cups water
- seasoning (Ginisa Mix)
- ground pepper
- 1 spoon soy sauce (adjust for color preferences)
- salt to taste
- Dilute the flour in the water well and add all the ingredients except the soy sauce.
- In a medium fire, boil the ingredients while stirring until it becomes thick.
- Add the soy sauce and stir well.
- Strain and serve.
Notes: Sometimes, I add garlic to the mixture to add more flavor and I strain it. You can also use chicken stock instead of seasonings or boil the chicken first and use the water for the gravy. When cooking, make sure that you will stir well while boiling, this will reach the thick and pure consistency.
