Deep Fried Watermelon Recipe

For those of you already in a State Fair of Texas frame of mind, check this out. It's something only we Southerners would do with - or to - watermelon.

1 watermelon, about 10 pounds
11 tablespoons flour
7 tablespoons cornstarch
2 egg whites, beaten
3 cups vegetable oil for deep-frying use
Powdered sugar

Cut the watermelon in half and scoop out the pulp. Remove any seeds from the pulp and cut the pulp into diamonds. Coat with flour.

Mix the egg whites with cornstarch and a little water into a batter. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet over high heat to about 250 F, or until small bubbles appear around a 1-inch cube of day-old bread dropped into the oil.

Dip the watermelon pieces in the batter and add to the oil.
Deep-fry until the coating becomes firm.

Turn off the heat, and continue to deep-fry the watermelon until it is
light brown.

Remove, drain well, sprinkle with the sugar, and serve.
Makes 12 servings.
