Crispy Fried Vegetables


Crispy Fried Vegetables is a popular Chinese or rather Indo-Chinese recipe which figures on top of almost every restaurant menu. Since it is juicy, loaded with sauces, spicy and bursting with flavours, it is an instant hit with both kids and adults. Crispy Fried Vegetables are basically batter fried veggies sauteed with sauces commonly used in Chinese recipes. Crispy Fried Vegetables are served as starters not just in Chinese restaurants but are also a favourite in weddings and parties. Vegetables like baby corn, broccoli, carrot and mushrooms are used in this delightful and easy recipe. You can also pack this amazing snack in the lunch box of your kids or take them in pot-luck. The only thing is that they should be served immediately, or else they turn soggy. To ensure that they remain crunchy for longer duration, add some rice flour to the batter and air-cool them and pack them in aluminium sheet among absorbent paper so that they remain crunchy even after they turn cold. You can also double fry them for a better taste.
