Over crowding the deep fryer
Do not over crowd your deep fryer. The fried food must have bubbling hot oil all the way around it for it to cook evenly and quickly. If you put too many ingredients in the deep fryer at once it will reduce the temperature of the oil resulting in a soggy mess.
Candle Nuts look similar to a macadamia: round, creamy and with high oil content – they’re normally used to thicken sauces. Common in South East Asian cooking.
