A British chippy is serving the world's most calorific festive treat - a deep fried Christmas PUDDING.
The battered dessert is on offer at Cafe Piccante, in Edinburgh - and is already a favourite with drunk people coming home from the pub.
Owner Selim Sener, 48, estimated that each serving of deep fried Christmas pudding contains around 400 calories.
Selim said: "I have been doing deep fried Mars Bars all year round and Creme Eggs at Easter, this has been on the menu for around two or three years.
"It is prepared in the same process as the fish, fried in batter.
"We buy the Christmas pudding ready made and it is fried in the same batter the fish goes in.
"The ones we buy contain 322 calories per Christmas pudding, per 100g,
"Once it's been deep fried it probably is around 400 calories.
"We just put it on the menu a couple of weeks ago and we've sold a few.
"People see it at Christmas time and they want to try it."
The Christmas pudding costs £3.95, or £5.50 with ice cream.
Selim added: "It is not too bad, I sold it to a few people and they were happy with it.
"It is heavy but it is nice warm.
"It is just Christmas pudding but warmer.
"We are in the city centre and we get a lot of people who have been up all night and they end up here before they go home.
"They order everything.
"It is popular with tourists, not just drunk people."
He joked that he is 'more Scottish than Turkish'.
Selim added: "I enjoy a deep fried Mars Bar once in a blue moon."
