  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  • Dandelion blossoms, stems removed
  • Salt (to taste)


Lightly stir cold water into the flour until just combined. In a large skillet, heat 1/2"-deep vegetable oil on high. Coat dandelions in the batter, then fry until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, salt and serve.
