For the caramel coating

  4. Remove from the heat, add the sesame seeds and mix well.
How to proceed

  2. Peel, core and cut the apples into bite-size pieces.
  3. Coat the apple pieces evenly with the batter and deep fry in hot oil until golden.
  4. Fill a serving bowl with ice-cubes and cover with water.
  5. Put the fried apples in the caramel syrup and coat evenly. Drain well and plunge into the ice-cubes bowl. Keep for a few minutes till the caramel coating hardens. Drain thoroughly.
