Deep-Fried Bok Choi Recipe

Deep-Fried Bok Choi Recipe

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

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


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.
