Sedano fritto di nonna Pasqualina (Fried celery)
½ celery stick
Vegetable oil for frying
1 clove garlic, crushed
White wine vinegar
½ tsp chilli flakes, to your preference
Slice the celery in thin slices about 10 cm in length.
In a pot of salted hot water, boil the celery for about 5 minutes, until soft.
Drain, place in a clean tea towel and pat dry. Make sure all the water has been squeezed out.
Season this with salt, garlic powder and chilli (to your preference) and then toss all this in plain flour.
Prepare oil in a hot frying pan, and grab a handful of the celery mix and fry. Make sure to shake off excess flour before you fry.
Fry until golden and crunchy in texture, drain on paper towel and drizzle over some of the vinegar.
These are great hot and cold.
