Easy Beer Batter

Recipe by  

"First rule of beer batter: Beer batter is not complicated, it should only contain beer and self-raising flour. Second rule of beer batter: The beer should be cold. Third rule of beer batter: You DO NOT need to sift the flour and don't over-whisk it. A few lumps actually makes for a better texture. Fourth and most important rule of beer batter: It is important to choose the correct beer according to what you are going to cook. As any ingredient ranges in texture and taste, so does beer."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can add some freshly ground spices to the batter to give a flavour kick if you like. Try deep frying fish in a beer batter laced with cumin, coriander, and paprika to give a Moroccan direction. Serve it with a Moroccan zucchini salad and yogurt.
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Press meat or vegetables into flour to coat, shaking off excess; dip into beer batter. Fry in hot oil in batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season immediately with salt.

Nice straight forward recipe. If you don't have self rising flour, no worries. Use all purpose flour and add 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of flour. I did beer batter fish with a light Mexican beer. Very nice.
