Thanks, Gina! You are the best! Smile

The other day we made fish and chips. The fish batter using your fish fillet batter recipe and it turned out very nice.... for the chips, could not find recipe here. So, I went to Food Network and found out to soak the potato and then, just put some flour and fry it. But turn out not crispy... So, next time, I am going to try this recipe!

I tried to mix the batter ingredients with 80ml beer but it was very dry. In the end, I pour the whole can of beer into it! So, the chips are very thinly coated but it is very crispy and everyone loves it. Very Happy However, I find it oily though. Perhaps, I am not used to making deep frying food. He he! In fact, this is my first deep frying food... Embarassed

sometimes its the absorption of flour that makes it dry. ideally, one should look at the batter to determine how much more liquid to add. the batter should be thick and sticky. When you use a spoon to scoop it, it should feel heavy. When you pour from spoon to bowl, it should come down slowly..that is the right texture for this beer batter.

Is there a way to keep these crispy for an hour or two as this would be ideal for a party.

change the SR flour to Rice Flour and use Double Action Baking Powder instead of regular baking powder.

then it will stay crispy for a longer period yummy
