Apple Fritters with Chocolate Sauce

BM # 53   Week 4   Day2

Apple fritters are one of the most common fritters but one of the most delicious ones, if served with right accompaniments. I like them with chocolate sauce, but the serving options are many. You could serve with ice cream. Enjoy them with dusted sugar or they taste awesome with custard too. I did not add any sugar to the batter, and so I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar and served with chocolate sauce.
These Apple fritters are for my Day 2 post under Fritters.

Apple Fritters
2 apples
Juice of one lemon
1/2 cup APF
1/4 tsp baking soda
Chilled water for making batter

Cut the apples cross ways into 1 cm-thick rings. Toss with the lemon juice and set aside.
Make a smooth batter with flour , baking soda and chilled water.
Dip the apple rings in batter, a few at a time, until completely coated, shake off excess, then carefully drop into the hot oil.
Cook for 1-2 minutes until golden on one side,, flip them over and fry them till golden
Remove, drain on paper towel then keep warm in a low oven while you fry remaining apple rings.
Dust with icing sugar , I used some cinnamon sugar too and dwith chocolate sauce.

Peeling and coring the apples is a personal choice. Since I do not like to peel them,
I soak the apples in water for a good 2-3 hours, changing water once or twice., but if you are pressed of time, you could peel them and cut.

I did not core the apples as I like proper slices of fritters, I did not want the donut look but you could core them if you wish.

The fritters taste best with Green Apples, since I did not get them , I made these with Red Apples.
