How to Fry Raw Spaghetti

Save

Pan frying cooked or leftover spaghetti causes the noodles to stick together, and results in a hearty, chewy, casserole-like dish, but deep-frying dry spaghetti straight out of the package creates crisp, thin straws with a pretzel-like consistency. Deep-fried spaghetti noodles can be used as a creative garnish, as croutons in soups and salads, and as a crisp topper for dips and casseroles.

Things You'll Need

  • Stovetop
  • Frying pan
  • Vegetable oil
  • Tongs or spatula
  • Dried spaghetti
  • Set the burner to medium-high. Heat enough vegetable oil in a frying pan to completely cover the amount of pasta you will be frying.

  • Prepare by breaking the spaghetti noodles in half and placing a paper towel on a plate.

  • Submerge the spaghetti in the hot oil a few noodles at a time. The spaghetti will burn very quickly; 10 to 15 seconds should be long enough. Remove the noodles with the tongs or a spatula when they are golden brown, and place them on the paper towel to absorb excess oil.

  • Put the next few noodles into the oil, and repeat until you have fried all of your raw spaghetti.
