  • Put enough sunflower oil in a large frying pan and heat to about 170°C/340°F. When the oil is hot enough, dip the carrot sticks one at a time into the batter and then place them in the boiling oil to fry for about 2 minutes.
  • Fry only a few pieces at a time so that the oil temperature does not drop too much. Once they have a nice browning, remove with a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and drain briefly.
  • Finally, salt to taste and serve immediately hot.
