It’s getting a bit chilly here in Cincinnati, OH… and when I say chilly I mean… it may has well be winter. I’m not a fan of the cold. Lots of hot coffee being consumed here.
One thing winter weather does to me is make me want to eat, but not just any food. I want warm food. Comfort food. Lately I’ve become quite a fan of fried pickles… but just ordinary fried pickles would not do… no not for me. I decided to put a bit of a spin on them!
The curry in these fried pickles adds the perfect amount of kick! Plus they’re super easy!
Curry Fried Pickles
-1 Cup Flour
-2 tsp Curry Powder
-1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
-1 Jar Sliced Pickles (I had quartered pickles so I sliced them myself!)
-Oil for frying (I used Canola)
For these tasty things: mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Pat dry the pickle slices with a paper towel, then add them to the bowl. Mix them around to make sure they are all coated in the mixture. Heat the oil to 375 degrees. Now go ahead and use a slotted spoon to drop in the coated pickles (careful you don’t splash yourself with hot oil!) Allow them to fry for a few minutes (until they’re golden brown) and then remove them to a plate with a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
For the Dipping Sauce
-1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
-1 Tbsp Pickle Juice (reserved from the jar)
-1 tsp Curry Powder
The dipping sauce is super simple! Just mix all the ingredients and viola!
