I’ve been busy going back to the tourist-y spots around my hometown (
I was lucky enough to score a cute little ripe pineapple at the fruit stores the other day; and the lady mentioned it was real sweet! And we all know….Sweet=dessert! YAY!I deep fried my pineapple slices; added a luscious scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of thick indulgent golden syrup…. *sigh* I was in deep fried fruit heaven… *laughs*
1 small pineapple peeled and sliced into 1cm slices
1 cup self raising flour
2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tbsp rough sugar (I flavoured my sugar with some dried star anise by storing them together in a jar for about a day)
¼ cup ice cold water
1 medium sized egg
2 cups frying oil
Vanilla ice cream and golden syrup to serve!
Mix self raising flour with cold water, egg and nutmeg. Beat to incorporate well. Dip pineapple slices onto sugar on both sides on a flat plate and then into thick batter. Coat well and drop into wok heated with hot oil. Oil must be hot enough before dropping in the pineapple slices.
**optional: Leave out the coarse sugar coating if you’re having the fried pineapple with golden syrup.
