Thai Crispy Fern Salad


4 serving


  • 120g fern tips
  • 2-3 cloves peeled garlic
  • 2-3 cleaned coriander roots
  • 1 tsp white peppercorns
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 120g tempura flour
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 700ml MERRIS Pure Vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • Thai Chili Sauce, for dipping


  1. Combine garlic, coriander roots and white peppercorns and mash them into paste.
  2. Mix the tempura flour, salt and crushed ice in a bowl until the ice is completely melted and obtain a fairly thick smooth batter without lumps.
  3. Heat MERRIS cooking oil in a wok on high heat. Dip the fern tips into the batter and drop the mixture into the oil and deep fry it until golden brown.
  4. Slightly lower down the heat and remove the fritter from the wok. Toss in some Thai Chili Sauce and serve.
