Peel parsnips and slice into 5mm rounds. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil and add parsnips. Cook for about 5 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain and cool slightly. Dip slices in melted butter and place on a baking tray. Refrigerate until the butter is firm, about 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. Coat parsnip slices in flour, then fry in the hot oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on kitchen towels and season with salt, chilli powder and cayenne to taste.
