This is a lovely snack: crisp on the outside, chewy and gooey on the inside. Not the healthiest thing, I know, but it can put a smile on your face even on the gloomiest days.
Deep-Fried Macaroni and Cheese
- leftover macaroni and cheese, chilled
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- oil for deep frying
Slice up your macaroni and cheese into slightly bigger than bite-sized chunks. Beat the egg, sift in the flour, and add the water; mix unti a thinnish batter is formed. Dip the macaroni chunks evenly into the batter.
Heat up the oil in a wok or large saucepan and cook the battered chunks in small batches till golden brown. Allow to drain on paper towels before serving. You can choose to serve these with a side of ketchup, but I think these taste best on their own.
Number of servings will depend on how much mac-and-cheese you had to begin with. 😀
