Indian street chef dips his hand into boiling oil to serve fried fish

Talk about a gimmick!

Why else would you eat at some shady street stall?

I guess the bits of fried skin add that special flavor the customers keep coming back for!


DIPPING his hands into a vat of boiling fat to pluck out fried fish, this street chef is taking his profession to the extreme. Prem Singh, 65, has become famed in the backstreets of Old Delhi for his unique ability. He regularly plucks fried fish from the vat – which is heated up to 200 degree celsius – using his bare hands. But incredibly, the veteran fryer says he has never suffered any burns, blisters or ill effects.
