This is a series where I note down some miscellaneous lessons learned, so that I remember them more. Deliberate practice is the best way to make sure the time you spend practicing is fruitful, but I find myself unable to recall the many lessons learned during the day, so I started this series!
Dipping potato sticks in the flour + chili powder + salt slurry (with some turmeric on my second iteration) is an ineffective way of coating before frying. While the coating tasted great, it was really uneven and hardly stuck to the fries, most of them were only covered on half their surface area if that. Next time, try coating the potato sticks in egg white and then rolling them around in the powder mixture.
When kicking to push back someone (I believe it's called a teep?), if I'm using my left leg then I should swing my left arm straight down right when I move my leg out for balance since it conserves my angular momentum and thus makes the movement easier for my body.
