Notes
Blanching means to put some food (mainly veggies and fruits) in hot boiling water and, once the water starts to boil again, drain them in icy cold water.

The rice flour is used to make the breading more crunchy, try to substitute it with semolina flour or corn flour for an interesting change in texture.

These carrots can be fried.

Very good as finger food and appetizer.
