The 7 foods you need to deep fry

Everything in moderation, sure, but sometimes it’s necessary to indulge in good old-fashioned battered-and-fried foods. And if the traditional favourites (beer-battered fish, anyone?) tickle your fancy, you’re going to love these 7 different ways of deep-frying food.

Deep-fried poached eggs

Add a whole lot of soul (and crunch) to brunch with deep-fried poached eggs. Serve with a homemade chakalaka for an extra kick.

Deep-fried green beans

Granted, this one is a little more virtuous than the rest on the list, but these tempura green beans earn a special spot for their simple, earthy flavour and fantastic crunch. Best served with a delicious dip.

Deep-fried onion

Deep-fried avocado

You’re going to have to trust on this one. Deep-fried avo is the perfect play on textures: crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Plus: tomato, ginger and coriander salsa adds a delightful freshness.

Deep-fried mac ‘n cheese

Tiny morsels of macaroni, white sauce and mature Cheddar, gently coated in panko crumbs and deep-fried to crispy, moreish perfection. This serves 10, but you may want to double the quantities: once you pop, you won’t be able to stop.
