It’s that time of year when deep frying is practically a mitzvah! So even if you usually avoid deep-fried foods, I say go with the flow and embrace the customs of the holiday.  You’ve got eight guilt-free nights to savor these sizzling delights—it would almost be a sin not to.

Caraway Noodle Pancake

Caraway Noodle Cakes with Red Cabbage

These Scandinavian-inspired noodle pancakes are crispy and crunchy on the outside, soft and yummy on the inside.
To make these perfect pancakes you will need 4 (3 ½-inch) ring molds.

Dairy Egg Rolls

Spicy Mexican Egg Rolls

I love egg rolls—and egg rolls love me! Now that egg roll wrappers are on the market, anybody can wrap and roll ‘em. This, my latest version, evokes a creamy, cheesy, Mexican-style baked potato.

Vegetable Tempura

Vegetable Tempura

I routinely order tempura at Japanese restaurants, and I always wanted to know how to make it at home. Now that I’ve
figured it out, I want to share the secrets to terrific tempura with you!

Sweet Potato Latkes with Brie and Baby Arugula

Sweet Potato Latkes with Brie and Baby Arugula

I recently enjoyed the most amazing Blue Cheese and Arugula Pizza at a new restaurant in Brooklyn. Couldn’t stop dreaming about it—and this superb latke is the inspired result. Use blue cheese (for a tangy, bold, sweet and sour flavor) or brie (for a milder, creamy effect) and finish it off with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and freshly ground black pepper.

    Every 5 or 6 weeks three friends and I gather together to eat (fried), drink and watch a movie together. We call it our Deep Fried Movie Night. Our husbands and children (and children-in-law) know that we will not be responsible adults on this night! Always looking for something new to fry!
    The tempura looks good, so do the egg rolls. Can’t wait to try them.
