Fried food is not very healthy, but it tastes delicious. However, apart from the not very healthy composition, it has another disadvantage. This lies in the preparation, during which the smell of burnt oil is released everywhere. Having the whole apartment scented in this way is certainly not pleasant. It is good to know the method. How to deal with the smell easily, quickly and cheaply.
What do you need to remove the smell of fried food?
- Lemon juice
Vinegar as an integral part of a fragrant home
Vinegar is the absolute champion in overcoming odours and unpleasant smells. If you decide to fry, prepare a pot of vinegar alongside. Mix this with water and boil without a lid for the entire frying time. The steam that will be released from the pot will help with absorbing the odour particles from the frying. For this purpose, not only classic but also apple cider vinegar will do.
Using a similar procedure as in the case of vinegar, you can also choose cloves. It has a natural aroma and a pleasant smell that can cope with the smell of burnt oil. Plus, it’s also great for classic home fragrance, so don’t be afraid to buy multiple packs.
Cinnamon or Vanilla
A beautiful smelling helper against frying smell is cinnamon. Here you can use either whole cinnamon sticks or its powdered version. Vanilla is also an alternative, but is usually more expensive.
Add a slice of dried apple or lemon directly to the oil
To prevent odour, you can add a slice of lemon or apple, or a combination, directly to the oil in the pan. This will not affect the taste of the food you are preparing, but you will definitely notice a difference in the intensity of the unwanted smell. Lemon juice works in a similar way and can also be added directly. The advantage of this variant is that it also refreshes the taste of the prepared food, which is useful, for example, when preparing juicy fish.
