Ricing potatoes into a deep fryer.

before i try this, has anyone ever tried ricing various types of potatoes directly into a deep fryer or fry pan?

i'm thinking of a kind of hash brown or knish idea, but lighter. i have loads of certain herbs (rosemary, chervil, mint, sage, lemon thyme, english thyme, garlic chives) and some wild onions/garlic, so i thought about experimenting.

They would probably crisp up instantly. You'd end up with crunchy potato bits with no soft texture in the center.

How would you get them out of the fryer?

I tried ricing potatoes and mixing them with ground beef into like a croquette one time. I used flour as a binder and coated them with bread crumbs. I tried deep frying them but they just disintegrated. I ended up having to pan fry them.

I see a giant oil filter in your future. I don't think you will get what you are expecting.
