Note: The kelp is cut into rectangles with a length of 5 cm and a width of about 3 cm, so that it can be easily clamped with chopsticks when frying in the oil pan.
Boil the kelp. Add cold water to the pot. After the water is boiled, put the kelp slices into the pot and blanch for a while. Remove and soak in cold water.
Note: The scalded kelp should be soaked in cold water, so that it tastes more tender.
Add 1 tablespoon of cooking wine, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of chicken essence, a little salt and 1 tablespoon of starch to the bowl, then add a little water to make a sauce for later use.

Add the right amount of flour and 1 tablespoon of starch to the bowl, pour in a little water, and stir to form a batter.
Note: When adding water, keep stirring the flour, and the batter should be slightly viscous, otherwise the kelp will not be easy to hang on the batter.
Add vegetable oil to fry the kelp. After the oil is heated to 60%, roll the kelp on the flour and hang the batter. Put it in the oil pan, fry it until golden brown, remove and drain the oil.
Note: Roll the kelp with flour first and then hang the batter evenly. When placing the oil in the pan, use chopsticks to put it in piece by piece

- When dicing the kelp, you must cut it into a larger size. It is better to clamp it with chopsticks, and it is easier to hang the batter.
- When the kelp is put into the oil pan, put it into the oil pot piece by piece, so that the kelp is not easy to stick together, and it is not easy to get rid of the paste.
- Add 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar or white vinegar to the sauce. Adding vinegar can not only season, but also make kelp soft and delicious after encountering vinegar.
- The kelp is basically cooked after frying, so when frying, add it to the pot at the end, and then pour in the sauce, so that the kelp is full of the sauce.
