3

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the ¼ cup oil, milk & some melted shortening—transfer to the dry mix of ingredients, gradually combining—whisk until batter is smooth & lump free

4

Transfer the batter into a tall glass or deep container, making it easier to dip the Franks into

5

Heat the 3-4 cups of oil or melted shortening in a deep fryer to abt 185-190 °C - alternatively use a deep wok or fry pan with the help of a deep frying thermometer to be able to gauge the temperature

6

Take the wooden skewers & insert into each Frank, leaving 2-3 inches free to use as a handle

7

Generously dip the skewered Franks into the batter, swirling to coat evenly & gently place into the hot oil spinning it slowly the entire time in order to get an even golden brown colour & to cook right through—fry for abt 3-5 mins to achieve this

8

Drain excess oil on paper towel lined plate

In a large serving platter, line the hot Corn Dogs & serve with the Mango-Cilantro-Jalapeno Dip
