Beer Batter Recipe






Some people associate deep frying with winter but  I beg to differ. Just imagine, a perfect, beautiful breezy summer day hanging out with your friends and just wanting to sink your teeth in some crispy, deep fried munchies along with a cold beer to quench your thirst and cool you down. Making deep fried side dishes or heck even a main dish is a cinch. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes. 

So what is beer batter and why is it different than regular batter? Batter with simple beer of your choice, flour and of course a few other various ingredients.  Anything you fry with beer batter it automatically pairs with a cold one.


No frilly ingredients are needed for this recipe, these are ingredients you have lying around in your kitchen and you can just whip up a batch of anything deep fried. I use it with onions, zucchini, cod fish  bites, chicken nuggets and you can even deep fry pineapple with this beer batter. It makes everything crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside.


Beer Batter

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour (I prefer self rising flour )
  • 1 can beer
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • * hot chili pepper
  • TIP: Once you think your oil is sizzling enough drop a little beer batter, if the batter starts to bubble and float your oil is ready!
So if your watching any game, say, like soccer, football, basketball, etc. make this batter in a jiffy and start deep frying. 

TIP: You can add chili powder, hot pepper to the batter or small tiny pieces of chili pepper.


I used this beer batter to make deep fried onions and they came out perfect! 


Dip them in the batter and with tongs take them out let them drip and place in the sizzling hot oil.





                                             




Place a paper towel on your plate so the oil can drain in it and then transfer to your serving platter.


   And once your onions are ready, you can prepare a nice platter combo
