Fried Perilla Flowers

….A few days ago, I knew that frying perilla flowers with seeds inside pouches makes it savory and attractive. After the flowers fall, the seeds are filled with small pouches. It was full of perilla seeds that I had never seen before. I was surprised that there are so many small ingredients that can be used as ingredients. I got the idea from @future.plate, who cooks with various ingredients. Thanks always…. My husband asked me quickly “What is it?” “It looks like a white snowflake!” “ It tastes so nutty and crunchy. Can I eat perilla flowers?”.……. It is a new ingredient for me that is beautiful, fun, and delicious. We ate perilla leaves, flowers, and seeds neatly with nothing to throw away.
