About this deal

You could use a chip pan or a large saucepan with a basket. But it is far more difficult to get a pan large enough to safely fry in and to manage the oil temperature. Not everyone owns an electric deep fryer. I don’t. I usually just use a stainless steel pot or cast-iron Dutch oven to do the job. It works perfectly. HOW TO KEEP FRIED FOOD FROM GETTING SOGGY Carefully place the chips into the fryer/pan and allow to cook gently for approximately 8 minutes. They should turn soft and still have a pale color.

Make up the batter. Add all the ingredients EXCEPT the beer / fizzy water, and give it a light whisk. Don't worry if there are lumps in the batter. This is good! These chips can be frozen after the first cooking phase. Transfer them from the pan and soak up any excess oil on some kitchen paper. Make sure you pat dry the ingredient you are going to fry really dry. Water is a nemesis here. If the ingredient you are going to fry has high water content, dredging the ingredient in a thin layer of flour before dipping into batter and fry. The flour helps to absorb the moisture

Battered Fish Recipe

Most shops use Ramos, Agria or Maris Piper potatoes. For this recipe, I've used Maris Piper as they are more available in the shops.

If you are using frozen fish, defrost it.Turn oven on to 150C, 300F, Gas 2 Allow fish to defrost on kitchen paper Proper fried fish is a true British art form – and needs little in the way of fancy embellishments. Beer and raising agents, for flavour and volume, and good hot fat are all you need for pure, unadulterated happiness. (Oh, and a piece of fresh fish, of course. But that's almost by the by.) Yes, it is the most important part of this recipe, if you do not get floury potatoes your chips will not turn out right. Increase your oil heat to 180C / 350F ready for the fish. Place a few sheets of kitchen paper in your baking tray. We will use this to place the fish once it's cooked. On a personal note, I abhor the mistreatment of animals and have taken care of many abandoned or injured animals over the years. Similarily, I love to help children and that is why my husband and I are in the process of becoming foster carers.You will get a good 10 minutes from this batter before it starts to flag. This gives you plenty of time to fry a second piece and finish off some chips too! Meanwhile, parboil the chips in boiling salted water for 4 to 5 minutes, or until softened but still retaining their shape, then drain and steam dry.
