Ingredients

1 eggs size large    
2 tbsp water   30 mL
1/4 cup cornstarch   35 g
2 apples, peeled, then cut into wedges   360 g

Before you start

An electric fryer or a deep frying pan will be needed for this recipe.

Method

  1. Preheat the oil to 175°C/350°F.
  2. Put the sesame seeds in a small pan and heat over medium heat a few minutes, with some stirring, until lightly coloured. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs and water, then incorporate the cornstarch. Peel and core the apples, then cut each into 8 wedges. To reduce the discolouration of the cut parts, sprinkle them all with lemon juice.
  4. Dip each wedge in the batter and deep fry 2 min until golden-brown, then set it on a paper towel to drain. Do only a few wedges at a time.
  5. To make the sauce, bring the sugar and honey to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat as soon as the sugar is dissolved, then stir in the sesame seeds.
  6. Drench the fritters with the sauce and serve them hot.
