Ingredients

Crispy kangkong leaves, perfect for dipping in your favorite sauce. Absolutely delicious!

Let's start cooking!

Water mixed into flour batter

Step 1 - Make batter and coat kangkong leaves

  • In a bowl, mix plain flour, corn flour, 1 egg, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 Tbsp salt, 1 tsp white sugar and 440 ml water until smooth and no lumps.
  • Coat kangkong leaves in batter.
    Substitute kangkong with spinach leaves.

Step 2 - Deep-fry kangkong leaves

  • In a pot, heat up enough vegetable oil for deep-frying. Once oil is hot, deep-fry kangkong leaves for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

    To test that the oil is hot enough for deep-frying, you can drop a 1 tsp of batter into the oil -it should sizzle and cook quickly.
  • Place onto a paper towel-lined plate once cooked.

    Serve with any sauce of your choice such as sambal belacan or garlic aioli.

Plate and serve!
