You will need:
Crinkle cut pickles (I buy the big jar at Sams Club)
1 cup Flour
1 cup soy milk
Deep fryer with oil
Seasonings to top the pickles with, all optional:
I used 1 T Cajun seasoning, 1 T Old bay seasoning, and 1 T cayenne pepper.
Preheat the deep fryer to 375 degrees. Meanwhile put the milk in one bowl and the flour in another bowl. In a third bowl mix the 3 seasonings together and set aside.
Grab a handful of pickles out of the jar, shake off excess juice and place them in the bowl of milk. Make sure they are all evenly coated.
Place the pickles in the bowl of flour 1 at a time making sure they are well coated on both sides.
When all your pickles are coated add them one at a time into the fryer so that they don't clump up and stick to one another.
Fry for 3 minutes and then raise the basket and let the excess grease drip off. Once its stopped dripping place the pickles on a plate lined with paper towels.
Sprinkle with seasonings to taste.
For a spicy dipping sauce I use Vegenaise mixed with franks red hot sauce, or sirachi chili sauce until its nice and hot.
