Is ‘deep-fried milk' actually amazing?

This is our new favorite dessert

DILLON THOMPSON: People on the internet are deep frying milk. It sounds scientifically impossible, but we're going to try it anyway.


So, apparently, deep fried milk is actually a classic treat in places like China, India, and Italy. This stuff is going worldwide. Here's how to make it. First, we're going to mix 6 cups of whole milk, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of cornstarch, and heat it up until it looks nice and slimy. Next, we're going to pour that mix into a glass dish lined with parchment paper, and let it cool in the fridge for at least two hours.

All right, we've got our weird frozen milk mix, which we're now going to cut into some slices. Then it's time to fry these bad boys. We're going to coat these in cornstarch, then egg wash, then panko breadcrumbs, and toss them in our fry daddy deep fryer for about three minutes. OK, it's time to eat these bad boys. Just to make sure this is officially the unhealthiest thing I've ever eaten on this show, we added some powdered sugar and a side of sweetened condensed milk to dip them in. All right, time to try these bad boys.

Oh, my gosh. Oh, man. These things are delicious. They're super sweet. They're crunchy. The texture is amazing. They're like the best version of a fried food you would get at a state fair, except for, honestly, this tastes a little bit classier, a little bit better. Our only problem with them would be that they're too sweet to eat a ton of. And they're kind of hard to make. So for that reason, we're giving them an 8 out of 10, except for, in my heart, they're a 10 out of 10. And I'm going to eat all of these until I fall deeply into a food coma.
