General Tsao Watermelon


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 8 ounce watermelon, sliced
  • 1 cup cornstarch


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water to adjust thickness

Generl Tsao Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon soybean oil
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup mushroom soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup sherry or chardonnay
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce


Mix together ingredients for batter.  After you make the batter, let rest for at least 20 minutes before frying. The result will have a far better texture.

Dust the sliced watermelon in the cornstarch before dipping into the batter.

Deep-fry the watermelon until golden brown.

Set to the side to cool, then deep-fry it again to crisp up.

To make sauce, heat soybean oil in a hot wok and add garlic, ginger and hot sauce. Stir for a couple of seconds. Add balance of the ingredients. Bring to a boil. Add dissolved cornstarch to thicken sauce.

Put the golden watermelon in and coat with the sauce.
