Many of us love fried foods as it often enhances the rest of the meal or makes for tasty snacks. However deep fried foods are not good for our health and our waistlines. I have experimented with a different way to “fry” a few of my favorites, like potato fries, eggplants & others. I am quite happy with the results.
I use the microwave and grill to achieve the taste of fried food, with a small amount of oil. Do click on the links to try the faux fried foods.
Thus far I have only experimented with vegetarian food. If anyone has recipes for non-vegetarian foods using minimal oil, do let me know.
