Hi folks, I was thinking about when I was a 17 year old lad living in my first run-down basement bedsit and how much I lived off home fried chips (French fries) cut from real potatoes and fried in a basket in a pan of oil.
After 20 something years later of healthy grilling, or oven baking I decided to buy a frying basket for my large pan today and do some real old fashioned chips (French fries) again, as a change from the processed frozen things I stick on a tray in the oven for 20 minutes.

I'm about to start peeling a few potatoes and have a greasy munch with some salt and vinegar in a short while, but before I do I thought I'd ask y'all for your favourite foods for a deep frying pan. Anything is open to the discussion, I've eaten deep-fried tarantula, bats, and even unknown bugs n grubs in Laos, but if you have any amazing quickish fry creations to share please do, from doughnuts to battered pork balls, or some deep fried cheese things I'm sure I've heard about, please do share it here!

Oh, and healthy isn't the reason I bought the fry basket lol, I fancy some greasy munch every now and then, and some tastebud bewitching dirty snack recipe stuck on my fridge door is another one in the dietary toolbox lol

Right, off to peel those spuds and have a dirty chip sandwich

Oh I love homemade chip buttys

I like deep fried squid cut into rings with a batter of flour,salt pepper and whatever you want (i like chillis) but only fry them for about 10 secs each otherwise it goes all rubbery.

Cheers BM, you are totally right about a real chip butty, chips nearly done, looking amazing...just gutted I forgot to get thick white bread at the shop, only got lame healthy wholemeal for my work sandwiches - healthy wholemeal and a dirty chip butty do not mix in my book, ah well, real butter so I'll still enjoy it!

Might be a little too late now but something we have been pigging ourselves out on for the last 2 weeks are deep fried Acacia flowers.

Just pick a bunch off an Acacia tree and dip them in salted or sugared batter (depending on your taste-buds) before dropping them into the pan.

They are ready when they start floating and show a golden brown colour.

Scrumptious...

You can try the recipie here too : italianfood.about.com...

Dribbling at the thought of MBs chip butty now... Ho hum... only another couple of hours until the evening meal...

Hey BoyMonkey... I thought you would have been more into Deep fried bananas?

Kindest respects

Rodinus

Ooh, that sounds lovely, exactly the kind of unusual thing I'm looking for, cheers Rodinus.
You're right though, the only Acacia I know near me (In a council/municipal park) has already flowered...next Spring oh yes, I shall have a go, sounds lush!

Oh wow, that's proper food porn!!
Unfortunately I have no idea where I'd get cheese curds from where I live...would Feta behave in a similar way perhaps?
...hmm, really sounds like flavourful food filth!

It's a difficult one

Deep fried mozzarella covered in bread crumbs is to die for.

Battered and breaded chilli shrimps

And chicken wings covered in salt, pepper, paprika and garlic. *Breaks into song* "These are a few of my favourite things"

Ignore Rod he's just plain weird, he eats snails for love of Pete


Man now I'm drooling

Mmm, drawn to the mozzarella, may get some tomorrow, and lol about the snails, I tried them a few years ago in France, really nice, to be fair, especially the sauce that accompanied them, just a bit fiddly to enjoy a good mouthful, so I took them all out of their shells, made a pile on my plate and attacked them with a spoon like the unrefined caveman I can be.

Way to go... a person after my own heart... never mind Cody he just isn't as smooth, suave and sophisticated as some of us others here

Hahaha smooth and suave, love it!
I quite often come back from the beach with a bag of limpets and periwinkles, flash boiled then served in a garlic and lemon sauce, free foraged munch.
*Less than 10 seconds heat with limpets though, otherwise they have the texture of a car tyre!

Being a southern girl, I like what southern girls should like! Lol.

Deep fried mushrooms, standard batter, but a total waste of time without horseradish sauce for the dipping!

Always on the quest for the "perfect" fried chicken recipe. The best fried chicken I ever had was a place called Po Folks, they changed their name to Folks. They also had the best ever chicken fried steak. I make it at home, but, just isn't the same.

Last, but not least, fried green tomatoes, yellow squash, and onion rings. Again, standard batter. We make them fresh from the garden as soon as they are ready to pick. Nearly impossible to find green tomatoes in the store, but thankfully, they have become popular enough that our local grocer has begun carrying nice green tomatoes.

They make a great meal all by themselves, and when we make them, it's rare we actually make it to the table! Fresh out of the pan, draining on paper towels, and munching as we dip and fry more! Lol, it's a fun time for us after working in the garden and yard, and enjoying our spoils. No, we don't do it often, so it's a wonderful, sinful splurge!

When the kids still lived at home, they anxiously awaited this time, and I knew I would have no trouble getting them to eat their veggies!

Eating a slug with a house is NOT suave and sophisticated Rod neither is getting so drunk you can't even make it up the stairs without assistance


@ grainofsand This recipe works quite well.

And I forgot Falafel Unlike Rod, myself being a man of the world not a stay at home housewife, the big girls blouse, I love many foreign foods. Another member on ATS just sent me some Lebanese recipes to try out as well. I love the recipe swaps on ATS, qite often in the avatar creations thread if we have a slack period we end up swapping recipes.

Yum, fried green tomatoes and yellow squash, never tried that, thank you.
Standard batter hmm...I shall have to wait for my tomatoes to grow through the Summer because the only tomatoes in stores near me are red.
Do ripened 'red' ones not do it so well then, has anyone tried?!

Cheers for the links, that Falafel, mmm especially amazing, can't believe I hadn't thought of that, only ever eaten it from a stall on the khao san road in Bankok, proper nice, tastebuds drooling now at the memory!
I'm really grateful for all ideas because I am a bit like a child with a new toy...oh wow, grr, really wish I had some Chickpeas in the cupboard now Lol

No. Feta would be gross imo.
Maybe a mild Gouda?

Well, it's that time of year again. The garden is doing well and soon enough I'll be going in it to pick some yellow squash.
We cut in in about 1/2 inch rounds, then dip it in egg and then roll it in seasoned flour and fry it. Oh my god I am addicted to that stuff. It's one of my favorites. I'll have to look in my old family cook book but we deep fry a lot of things here. Even bologna.

Oh wow, that yellow squash fried in egg n flour sounds amazing!
Please do share any hidden secrets from the cook book if you find them, I'm loving the return to deep frying, some lovely sounding munch ideas out there!!

Brie and Camembert work

The wife loves them both, we sometimes just fry up a random batch and sit picking.

Well we we did before her diet.

Now it's just me and I need all the calories I can get. Creamy is the best way to go.
