    Really surprised that you list fried pickles and mars bars, but not a single mention of fried Zucchini, which is much more common, especially at county fairs.

    In India they have samosas, in Mexico they have empanadas, in England they have meat pies, in Wales they have pasties, in Russia they have pirozhki, in America we have hot pockets! I don't know if you can deep fry a hot pocket but now I want to try.

    Jalapeno poppers? Fried mushrooms? Mozzarella sticks totally should have made the list, like number 2 for sure. Pickles should have had a spot, too!

    My favorite fried food is called a Panzerotti. They are large pieces of pizza dough stuffed with pizza toppings then deep fried for around 5 minutes. They are so big and filling that most people can only eat half of one.

    There's two kinds of onion rings. The first is the sliced onion dipped in batter and fried type. The second is made with chopped onions in batter which poured into a ring and fried. Diners thaty serve them have a device that drops a perfect ring shape in a frying pan with maybe an inch of boiling oil. It's similar to the device they use to drop a perfect silver dollar pancake on a griddle. Both are delicious.

    If you use “heart healthy” in the same sentence as “frying”, you’re foolish. For one, oil changes chemically when heated; and secondly, too much oil is bad for you. And generally fried foods are still soaked in their own oil.

    Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles are delicious. Every time I have eaten at one of the Restaurants in Los Angeles, the fried chicken was absolutely mouth watering. Also, the waffles are delicious. Another favorite I had was Golden Bird Chicken. They once had several locations in Los Angeles. No sure if they are still in business. The chicken was crispy, moist and delicious.
