CHINESE TOFFEE APPLES

Deep-fried crispy apple fritters soaked in honey syrup and topped with sesame seeds.


Cooking Time : 20 min.
Preparation Time : 10 min.

Serves 4 to 6.

Ingredients

4 ripe apples, peeled, cored, cut in wedges

For the batter

3 tablespoons plain flour (maida)
3 tablespoons cornflour

For the syrup

1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Other ingredients

oil for deep frying
iced water to serve with fritters

For the batter


1. Mix the flour and cornflour and sift in a bowl. Make the batter with 5 tablespoons of water and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.


2. Dip the apple wedges in this batter and deep fry till golden brown.


For the syrup


1. Keep aside all the fritters.


2. In another pan, heat the oil, add the sugar and heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and caramelises lightly. Stir in the honey and the sesame seeds.


3. Keep warm.


How to proceed


1. Pierce each fritter with a tooth pick and place on a plate.


2. Pour the warm syrup in one bowl and pour ice-cold water in another bowl.


3. When ready to eat, dip each fritter in the warm syrup and then in ice-cold water. This will cause the syrup coating to harden so the fritters will be crisp and cracking on the outside surface.


Tips

Prepare the syrup as close to serving time as possible.
It only takes a few minutes and the results will be much better.
