Now For Something Different A Recipe

My tea last night

We do the hot cross bun and fish thingy for Good Friday
I made the fish and chips from scratch
Dragged the deep fryer out of the cupboard
Peeled the spuds cut into chips and made the batter for the fish
No Fish and Chip Shop job for us

Want to know how to make the best chips ever?

OK here goes

When you have peeled the potatos and cut into chips
put them into a bowl of water let stand for a few minutes
Drain all the water off and spread them on a clean tea towel and pat dry
Cook the chips in small batches untill cooked but not brown
Drain onto paper towel
When you have all your chips cooked refry untill golden brown
The chips will be crispy on the out side and soft in the middle

Now for the best batter recipe

Beer Batter

1 1/4 cups flour
pinch salt
1 egg
1 1/4 cups Beer

Make a well in the centre of the bowl of flour
Put egg in centre and slowly incorporate beer and
flour into the mixture by slowly stirring
Cover and let mixture stand 30 minutes

Soda Water can be used instead of Beer

After 30 minutes your batter is ready to use

Gotta goe now
NEED my coffee
will be back later with question 3
hope you are having fun playing along
