6 to 7 large artichokes, peeled, cleaned and choke removed

1 lemon, halved

1 cup all-purpose flour 

1/2 cup dry pancake mix 

2 tablespoons granulated garlic 

2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes 

1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper 

1 teaspoon salt 

Dipping sauce, for serving


Special equipment:
a steamer or rice cooker
  1. Preheat the deep fryer to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the cleaned artichoke hearts in half and place in a large bowl with water to cover. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the lemon halves to the bowl to avoid oxidation.
  3. Remove the artichokes from the acidulated water. In a steamer or rice cooker, steam the artichoke hearts until tender, 10 to 12 minutes, then cool.
  4. In a large bowl, add the flour, pancake mix, granulated garlic, parsley, black pepper and salt. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup water and whisk to create a medium-thick batter, it should resemble the consistency of pancake batter. Dip the steamed artichoke hearts in the batter and coat completely. Fry until golden, about 4 minutes. Drain the artichoke hearts on paper towels. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce or as-is.
