The only deep fried vegetables I had ever eaten back home was probably Japanese Tempura dishes. But I've noticed that in Texas ( and in the South ), vegetables like okra ( or lady's fingers to Malaysians ) are deep fried..along with squashes.
Now "squash" as a vegetable ( and not as a sport or a meaning akin to squish ) was a new term to me when I got to the States. I've always known and loved cucumbers, but squashes, although some of them looked like cucumbers, were way different.
Cindy made some fried squash for lunch today, so I thought I'd just share some recipes I found online. Enjoy!
To be perfectly honest, I'm not a fan of deep fried stuff. Baking and soup/curries is more my cup of tea.
