Deep-Fried Bok Choi Recipe
http://chinesefood.about.com/od/dimsumrecipes/r/chineseseaweed.htm

Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1/2 pound bok choy
1/4 cup toasted almonds
2 cups oil for deep-frying, or as needed
1 teaspoon granulated sugar



Preparation:

Wash the bok choy and drain thoroughly. Finely chop
the toasted almonds.

When the bok choy has dried, separate the stalks and
leaves. Roll the leaves up cigar-style, and then cut
into thin shreds.

Heat the oil in a wok to between 300 and 325 degrees
Fahrenheit. Add a batch of the shredded bok choy.

Submerge the bok choy shreds in the hot oil for a few
seconds only and remove quickly. (If you have one, a
mesh deep-frying basket is ideal for this). Do not let
the leaves turn brown. Drain on paper towels.

Continue with the remainder of the bok choy shreds.

Place the shreds in a bowl and toss with the sugar and
chopped almonds. Serve immediately.
