8 Unexpectedly Good Fried Food That You Need To Try!

8 Unexpectedly Good Fried Food That You Need To Try!

You probably eat a healthy and balanced diet for most of the year or at least you are trying to. Once in while, when you decide to give it a rest, indulge in these totally unique and scrumptious fried foods.

These foods are all batter dipped and deep fried. Shallow frying will not give you the same crispy texture all around. Many these recipes call for frozen scoops to be fried for very short periods over high heat. The food item should be completely submerged in hot oil.

If you are hosting a party, most of these recipes can be made ready for frying, ahead of time. These foods can be then be quickly fried and served piping hot to your guests. Hot and crunchy on the outside, cold and melting inside, the contrasting textures and temperatures create an explosion of sensations for your taste buds.

1. Deep Fried Oreos

    You may have come across these delicacies in local county fairs. This is a fun dinner party dessert that can be easily made at home with pancake batter. Egg and milk are optional. Remember to keep the batter consistency thick enough to coat the biscuits.

      Banana fritters were a staple in my house till they got replaced by a new favorite: chilled, sweet and juicy pineapple. Serve some super crispy pineapple fritters made with light tempura batter, as starters at your party. Add a dash of cinnamon or drizzle some honey over them.

          The ultimate indulgent dessert, deep fried chocolate chip cookie dough is made with frozen cookie dough that is dipped in batter and fried till crisp and golden brown. The inside will be soft and gooey with melted chocolate bits. Another idea along similar lines is simple dropping spoonful of leftover cake batter in hot oil to make crispy balls and then rolling them in melted chocolate. Simply dusting with cinnamon flavored icing sugar is also a great idea.

              Guacamole, the  avocado-based Mexican classic, has now become one of America’s favorite dips. To turn the dip into a salad dressing, the prepared guacamole is ground more finely till smooth and then water or  olive oil is added to make the consistency more flowing.  Guacamole is quite easy to make; mashed avocado is mixed with other ingredients like lime juice, salt, onion, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic and cayenne pepper. You can freeze leftover guacamole in ice cube trays. Pop the frozen cubes into batter and deep fry for a quick and amazing snack.

                These actually are said to taste like the most buttery bread you’ve ever had. You can combine some cheese with the butter and use a funnel cake batter to dip and fry them. You can also coat them with bread crumbs after dipping in the batter and then fry them crisp.

                  Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                  Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                  Assuming positive intent is an important contributor to quality of life.

                  Most people appreciate the dividends such a mindset produces in the realm of relationships. How can relationships flourish when you don’t assume intentions that may or may not be there? And how their partner can become an easier person to be around as a result of such a shift? Less appreciated in the GTD world, however, is the productivity aspect of this “assume positive intent” perspective.

                  Advertising

                  Most of us are guilty of letting our minds get distracted, our energy sapped, or our harmony compromised by thinking about what others woulda, coulda, shoulda.  How we got wronged by someone else.  How a friend could have been more respectful.  How a family member could have been less selfish.

                  However, once we evolve to understanding the folly of this mindset, we feel freer and we become more productive professionally due to the minimization of unhelpful, distracting thoughts.

                  Advertising

                  The leap happens when we realize two things:

                  1. The self serving benefit from giving others the benefit of the doubt.
                  2. The logic inherent in the assumption that others either have many things going on in their lives paving the way for misunderstandings.

                  Needless to say, this mindset does not mean that we ought to not confront people that are creating havoc in our world.  There are times when we need to call someone out for inflicting harm in our personal lives or the lives of others.

                  Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, says it best in an interview with Fortune magazine:

                  My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From ecent emailhim I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response. You don’t get defensive. You don’t scream. You are trying to understand and listen because at your basic core you are saying, ‘Maybe they are saying something to me that I’m not hearing.’ So ‘assume positive intent’ has been a huge piece of advice for me.

                  Advertising

                  In business, sometimes in the heat of the moment, people say things. You can either misconstrue what they’re saying and assume they are trying to put you down, or you can say, ‘Wait a minute. Let me really get behind what they are saying to understand whether they’re reacting because they’re hurt, upset, confused, or they don’t understand what it is I’ve asked them to do.’ If you react from a negative perspective – because you didn’t like the way they reacted – then it just becomes two negatives fighting each other. But when you assume positive intent, I think often what happens is the other person says, ‘Hey, wait a minute, maybe I’m wrong in reacting the way I do because this person is really making an effort.

                  “Assume positive intent” is definitely a top quality of life’s best practice among the people I have met so far. The reasons are obvious. It will make you feel better, your relationships will thrive and it’s an approach more greatly aligned with reality.  But less understood is how such a shift in mindset brings your professional game to a different level.

                  Not only does such a shift make you more likable to your colleagues, but it also unleashes your talents further through a more focused, less distracted mind.
