Deep-Fried Broad Beans (Fava Beans)
from Sandi

I happened upon these in a local Asian grocery store and fell in love. This basic recipe hails from

10 snack-sized servings

  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 1 lb fresh broad bean, podded
  • salt

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or deep saucepan.

Add the broad beans to the hot oil and fry until lightly coloured.

Remove the fried beans using a slotted spoon. Drain on kitchen paper.

Season with salt and serve.
