How-To Deep Fry Vegetables with Dirt Candy

Don't be too worried, though—she also shows us how to deep-fry a candy bar, so not all of the fatty fun of deep-frying is lost.

    • Alexi Septimus says:

      +DJS He’s right, she’s in the year book of my great-great mars bar’s.

    • Jadduck says:

      +DJS Isn’t it obvious?

      She was in house slytherin.

  10. Jadduck says:

    A lot of you guys *really* don’t know much about the diversification of
    cuisines.
    It’s quite traditional for a number of Asian cultures to deep-fry their
    vegetables (predominately Thai & Indian).

    This isn’t an American thing *at all*.

  11. Dave says:

    She’s cute in a I got two hours of sleep kind of way. 

  12. J Ackerley says:

    Only in America could you sound healthy by deep frying vegetables!

    • jetsgo66 says:

      +Giuliano Machado yes because a thin batter is incredibly unhealthy. Never
      had tempura?

    • Amos Schorr says:

      +J Ackerley Yeah, except she’s right in saying deep frying is healthier
      than sauteeing. When the food is deep fried in oil that’s hot enough, the
      moisture inside the food will be expelled from the food (hence the
      bubbles). Since water and oil don’t mix, the water essentially creates an
      impermeable barrier that prevents the food from absorbing much oil.

      So as long as the oil is at a high enough temperature, and as long as you
      take the food out at the proper time, deep frying really isn’t that bad,
      and really won’t be very greasy at all.

    • Elton Lam says:

      +J Ackerley Except Japan has been deep frying vegetables way earlier. Ever
      had tempura?

    • Giuliano Machado says:

      +jetsgo66 so you separate the fried batter from the broccoli right?
