This is one snack that no doctor would approve.
Work was really slow today, and the greatest ever idea, for the day that is, hit me.
Buy mars bars, and deep fry them.
I remember a episode of a Cook's Tour, where this scottish lad shows Anthony Bourdain a chip shop that has those cholesterol laden gems.
The origin of the Deep Fried Mars Bar is shrouded in mystery, but it is believed to have first surfaced in Scotland's northeast, around Stonehaven.
Deep dried mars bars is no stranger in this land. There's a shop at Far East that has them, but I haven't tried theirs yet.
I made a simple batter consisting of hot milk, raw sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and flour.
Then I chilled the sliced mars bars for a while, dipped them in the batter and deep fried them.
When I offered the waitstaff / kitchen staff the deep fried mars bar, the reactions were mixed.
"This is SO good."
"Huh!? I'm on a diet!"
*smiles* after putting one in their mouth, without saying a word.
Give it a go, and decide for yourself.
