Picture of Deep Fried Watermelon

Deep fried watermelon!

This is a very unique twist to the simple watermelon. If you love watermelon, you will surely love this.

I wanted to create something different for the watermelon contest. Hence I decided to just experiment deep frying the watermelon. My family found the taste to be very unique and surprisingly good. The juicy watermelon and crispy outer covering is an amazing combination.

It is quite tricky to get a coating of the batter over the juicy watermelon. With few trials I reached at a good result. I will be sharing with you what I learned while trying to create the deep fried watermelon. I sugar coated it while serving. Hope you like it too.

If you like it, please do vote for me. I will be on cloud nine.

Thank you!

I wonder what it would be like to use a funnel cake batter. Then after it's done, lightly sprinkle it with powdered sugar. If you like watermelon it should be delicious.

Passion Make (author)  kudzu631 year ago
Ya. It sounds delicious to me too.. :)

Pickle the peel?

Passion Make (author)  snoopindaweb1 year ago

Great idea :)

The watermelon where you are slicing it does not look appetizing to me. It may be the lighting but it looks kind of slimy and yellow. The rest of the inst. are well done and clear. Good luck.

I think it is your monitor not rendering the proper color/brightness/contrast, it looks perfectly fresh on my 80" screen... :-)

I was worried about the photo. :) I had chose the most fresh one and made it on the same day . I was eager to make the recipe on the same day.

Passion Make (author)  terrefirmax21 year ago
It is the lighting I guess. Too much of flash. No more watermelon at home. So cannot redo also. Kept back the sliced watermelon photo. Taken down the one you didn't like. Thanks for your comment. :)

is it baking soda or baking powder? there's no such thing as baking soda powder. ?

I'll have to give this a try.

baking soda in powder form... :-)

Passion Make (author)  maxhuey1 year ago

Exactly! :D

Passion Make (author)  thardy21 year ago

It is Baking soda. I will change it. Thanks for pointing the mistake it out. Do try it out :)

have you tryed diffrent types of mellon (seedless,black diamond,honeydew,canalope,).also havee you tryed it with funnel cake batter. Iv done simmiler with lime an cucembers or watermelon lemon

This recipe is made with the seeded variety. It would be very interesting to try with all the combinations you have mentioned. Funnel cake batter is such an interesting idea. Thank you!

Does this come out a bit like a jelly doughnut?

Passion Make (author)  AngryRedhead1 year ago
Its is crispy right after deep frying it. So best to serve immediately. Not exactly jelly. But if you keep for sometime the juice of watermelon will make the outer crispy layer wet slightly.

i wonder if you used the pink and white part of the rind if it would last longer as there is less water. i think that's the part they use when pickeling.

Passion Make (author)  fixfireleo1 year ago

Usually deep fried are the best when served hot. The recipe serves the purpose. So you can plan for serving hot :)

Passion Make (author)  fixfireleo1 year ago

You can try that n create a new recipe :)

the water content of the watermelon is NOT good for your oil so i wouldnt use a frydaddy or other deep fryer where you reuse the oil. also, it might be easier if you freeze the watermelon first...have you tried that? then again, maybe as it thaws, it might be a mess.

Passion Make (author)  fixfireleo1 year ago

I have not tried that. Thanks for the idea :)
