Indeed, properly deep-fried food is actually ''steamed'' on the inside, as the high temperature causes the water present in most food to vaporize; the pressure generated from the steam combined with the fact that fat and water repel each other ensures that the fat only penetrates the outermost layer if you've done things right.[[note]]This is why, when one makes french fries/chips well, the outer layer is crispy while the inner parts seem more like a baked or boiled potato.[[/note]] Note, however, that batter and breading almost always ''will'' absorb the fat; if you do things properly, though, whatever it is you've battered or breaded still won't absorb the fat, which is why properly-made fried chicken isn't greasy on the inside.

* Speaking of Egypt... In the Middle East, the Egyptians are noted for their penchant for frying. Falafel--which is of course deep-fried ground legume patties[[note]]In most of the world, the legume is chickpeas, but in Egypt, fava beans are preferred.[[/note]]--is probably the invention of Egyptian Christians in late antiquity trying to find a good and tasty source of protein during Lent, when the unique fasting rules of [[UsefulNotes/OrthodoxChristianity their church]] required them to be vegan. Deep-fried onions are also a critical ingredient in the Egyptian national dish [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kushari kushari]] (incidentally also vegan and thus acceptable for Lenten eating). Deep-fried fish and deep-fried battered balls of ground shrimp are also traditional and popular. Egyptians also fry their garlic before using it, to the derision of their neighbors; they are also in the habit of frying liver (not battering it, fortunately), to the derision of the Lebanese (who eat it raw. Good luck with that.). There may be historical and environmental reasons for this mania for frying; the earliest record of frying comes from Egypt, about 2500 BCE, so it's fair to say the Egyptians probably ''invented'' Deep Fried Whatever, or at least Fried Whatever; and given that the Nile Valley makes Egypt stupidly humid as well as stupidly hot in the summertime, it's fair to say that the desire to keep cooking times short that drove the American South to frying also apply to Egypt.

In RealLife, deep-frying is popular in America (particularly in the DeepSouth), Scotland, and parts of Asia. A possible reason for its success is because deep-frying is so much ''faster'' than other methods of cooking. Once the oil is hot enough, the food cooks in minutes. This is particularly good in hot climates (like the American South and the parts of Asia, like Guangdong Province in China, where it is widespread), because when it's hot outside and there's no air conditioning, you want to stay out of the hot kitchen as much as possible. And since the heat makes a seal in the outer layer of the food, the inside is not as greasy as one might expect (if it is, someone did something wrong), as opposed to pan frying. Indeed, properly deep-fried food is actually ''steamed'' on the inside, as the high temperature causes the water present in most food to vaporize; the pressure generated from the steam combined with the fact that fat and water repel each other ensures that the fat only penetrates the outermost layer if you've done things right.[[note]]This is why, when one makes french fries/chips well, the outer layer is crispy while the inner parts seem more like a baked or boiled potato.[[/note]] Note, however, that batter and breading almost always ''will'' absorb the fat; if you do things properly, though, whatever it is you've battered or breaded still won't absorb the fat, which is why properly-made fried chicken isn't greasy on the inside.
