Realised we don't eat very much fried food in our household. Bought it because I want to try making tempura and to fry my own fish and chips when we have them but what else is really delicious fried?

Meat, cheese, sweet treats? Open to any ideas/recipes.

Camembert with cranberry sauce.

Mozzarella sticks

Chicken in southern style coating

Fish goujons in beer batter

Fish cakes or rissoles.

I only really deep fry Tempura as you've mentioned actually. It's a huge favourite here. I use sparkling icy water and dip the veg in it over ice - the batter is immensely bubbly.

hedge I always imagine that a deep fried mars bar would be secretly delicious, but sounds so wrong.

Deep fried banana is sooo nice. And I cant stand bananas normally.

Falafels much nicer deep fried smile

Are sweet potatoes yams? shock

You should probably do an investigation into which chocolate bar deep fries best. I vote Bounty. Mars is nice too. I'd like to try a Creme egg. I suspect Milky Way would be a waste of time.

My mum used to do thin slices of courgette dipped in.batter and fried. I didnt realise at the time it was tempura. She used to serve it with our roast dinner confused

Homemade onion bhajis. Dead easy especially if you have a food processor to slice/chop the onions. Most supermarkets sell gram flour now. (Excuse me, I appear to be drooling.)

This thread has made me want a fryer.

Fried chicken, I've done loads of recipes for it, all lush.

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sun 14-Apr-13 08:52:08

southern fried chicken

Years ago my dad saw a recipe for leek fritters, very nice. Then he got a bit of a fritter obsession. Just one word of warning pickled onion fritters on your Sunday dinner aren't good, especially if you were expecting leek smile

little cubes of mozzarella, feta cheese covered in batter to eat with salad or for a snak.

MsUumellmahaye Sun 14-Apr-13 10:56:19

home made onion rings mmmmmm, i miss my fryer.

dashoflime Sun 14-Apr-13 11:00:57

Parsnip chips are good.

Also: deep frying is the only way to do tofu. Deep fry little cubes and then stick them in stir frys and soups.

NettoSuperstar Sun 14-Apr-13 12:18:05

I made agedashi tofu with deep fried tofu, delicious.
Arancini are good too.
Actually, you can't really go wrong with anything, all deep fried food is good.

This thread is making me drool too. Any recommendations for a deep fat fryer?

InsanelyBrainDeprived Tue 14-May-13 21:00:10

Plain old potato chips. Nothing better especially with sea salt sprinkled on
