These days, you can deep fry almost anything. And with enough imagination, you can probably come up with some new and innovative ideas. At local festivals, I’ve tried deep fried Mars Bars (sickeningly sweet), deep fried Oreos (not bad) and even deep fried cheesecake (melt in your mouth goodness – literally). I even once tried deep fried coke, but that was disappointing because they just poured coke on some deep fried batter.
When I was in Taiwan, I discovered something called deep fried milk. How do you fry milk?
Basically, you make milk the star of a custard recipe. Refrigerate it, then coat it in a crumb and deep fry it. It doesn’t taste like milk, per se, but has a sweetness to it with a soft texture and a lightly crunchy coating. If you ever see this on a menu or at a food stand, try it! It’s so good!
