A pleasantly-surprising recipe encountered in China. Also, a good first attempt for beginning deep-fryers. Makes a good substitute to chips or fries.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. If using frozen corn, thaw. If using canned corn, microwave in a glass bowl or gently heat on the stove until warm.
  2. Coat corn with a light layer of egg wash.
  3. Mix salt, pepper, MSG, and other spices into the flour.
  4. Move corn from the egg wash, and toss with the flour mixture until well-coated.
  5. Heat enough oil for deep-frying to moderate–high heat.
  6. Deep-fry floured corn until golden brown on the outside (less than 2 minutes).
  7. Serve as a complement to another dish.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

Warnings[edit | edit source]

  • When a pot of hot oil catches fire, the flames will reach up to 2 or 3 feet. If you must work under flammable cabinets or shelves, be sure to have a fire extinguisher handy. An oil with a high smoke point is less likely to cause problems, including indoor air pollution and fire. See deep-frying for more warnings.
