  2. Deep-fry kangkong leaves

    • In a pot, heat up enough vegetable oil for deep-frying. Once oil is hot, deep-fry kangkong leaves for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and crispy. 
    • Place onto a paper towel-lined plate once cooked

    | To test that the oil is hot enough for deep-frying, you can drop a 1 tsp of batter into the oil - it should sizzle and cook quickly.



Plate and Serve!

Transfer deep fried kangkong leaves into serving plate or dish and serve hot. Serve with any sauce of your choice such as sambal belacan or garlic aioli.
