If your chicken feet are not completely dried, the oil might sparkle. Remember to use a long chop stick to turn the chicken feet and cover the fryer with a lid. If you did not divide the chicken feet into two parts, then deep fry them in small batches and add
slightly more oil. Just make sure that they are well deep-fried.
Transfer the feet to a large bowl with iced water. Soak the chicken feet for 3 to 4 hours to achieve the tiger skin effect.
To steam: transfer the chicken feet to a steamer. Prepare all the ingredients for the steaming sauce. Steam at first the chicken feet for 15 minutes and then evenly pour on them the steaming sauce. Continue to steam for another 30 to 40 minutes.

Whenever Macbeth and Banquo meet the Weird Sisters, the three witches uncover to the commanders their destinies. They disclose to Macbeth that he would turn into the Thane of Cawdor and before long, lord of Scotland. They likewise prophesize that Banquo’s relatives would rule as lords. Macbeth is at first wary of the witches’ predictions. Nonetheless, subsequent to being educated by King Duncan that he would turn into the new Thane of Cawdor after the other had double-crossed Scotland and would be condemned to death, Macbeth starts to trust that what the witches said may be valid. Affected by the witches’ prediction, Macbeth shapes an extreme enthusiasm and desire to wind up the new ruler of Scotland. This aspiration would turn out to be strong to the point that he would experience extraordinary measures to accomplish what he needed.

Before meeting the witches, Macbeth is a respectable man who won support from King Duncan for his boldness in battling in fight.

With his aspiration and a little impact from his significant other, Macbeth executes Duncan and casings the murder on Duncan’s child Malcolm, who fled Scotland in dread of his own life. In the wake of getting to be top dog, Macbeth feels debilitated by Banquo. Banquo was available with Macbeth when they met with the witches and Banquo winds up suspicious that Macbeth was the killer of Duncan. Macbeth additionally recollects the witches’ prediction that Banquo’s relatives would lead as rulers of Scotland. To stop Banquo’s doubt and guarantee that his relatives never move toward becoming lord, Macbeth’s contracts three killers to murder Banquo and his child, Fleance. The killers prevail with regards to executing Banquo, yet neglect to slaughter Fleance.

The second ghost, who shows up as a bleeding infant, encourages Macbeth to be striking and overcome, for no man conceived of lady would hurt him. The last ghost shows up as a delegated youngster with a tree in its grasp. The nebulous vision reveals to him that Macbeth would not be crushed until the point when Birnam Wood meets at Dunsinane Hill. Amid this gathering, the witches furnish Macbeth with false security. Macbeth, trusting that what the witches demonstrated him would be valid, now ends up arrogant and presumptuous that he would stay as ruler. Given that all men are conceived of ladies and that Birnam Wood, a backwoods, can’t move to Dunsinane Hill, Macbeth feels for all intents and purposes strong.

Despite the fact that Macbeth feels secure, regardless he notices the principal nebulous vision’s first cautioning to be careful with Macduff and slaughters the spouse and child of Macduff.

He wouldn’t have turned out to be fixated on control and would not have slaughtered King Duncan. On the off chance that it was his destiny to wind up ruler, at that point it would come to him normally as opposed to being constrained upon him through killing. The witches in this play affected Macbeth into settling on terrible choices driving him into turning into a shocking saint.
