Chicken w/Bamba (M, TNT)
Source: An adaptation of an idea from the TV
4 chicken parts for frying (use your favorite parts such as breast
for schnitzels or thighs for fried chicken)
1 small (2-1/2 oz.) bag of BAMBA*(see note)
1/2 cup your favorite kind of bread crumbs
With rolling pin, mash Bamba to crumbs. Mix in equal quantities with
bread crumbs, and proceed as in making schnitzels or fried chicken.
Bamba is the Israeli Cheetos - its a snack, very popular, made from
peanuts. Even pediatricians recommend it, because while it is cooked it is swirled
in a drum and coated with a layer of vitamins (or so the pediatricians have
been told). Unlike other snacks, this can be given to very young kids since
it melts in the mouth - no crumbs to suffocate on.
For many kids in Israel (my personal daughter included) this is their first
spoken word, since it is in syllables easy for a baby to say.
To your point - it is most certainly Hechshered, not only hechshered but
BADATZ. I know this from personal experience if I may say so because if you
the flour mill that I used to operate, one of our biggest customers was
Osem (one of the largest, if not the largest food manufacturers in Israel).
They were very particular about the soy flour (that was my part in the
Bamba life circle) that it would be BADATZ. In Israel you can find also KLP Bamba (for Sepharadic).
I know for a fact that it can be bought in the US in stores that sell
kosher stuff, like in many parts of NY.
See, you do learn a lot when you run a food factory in Israel...
