Frying is cooking by immersion in oil—either total immersion, or partial immersion on each side. 

Braising is a two-stage process: the food is first either seared in a dry pan or browned in a little oil, and then cooked slowly in a simmering aqueous (non-fat) liquid. Liquid can be added or simply the steam condensing on the lid and falling back into the pot.
