  • 2 tsp baking powder

  1. CHIPS: Blanche the chips in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain, refresh with cold water and drain again.

  3. FISH: Sieve the flour and cornflour into a bowl, then add the baking powder and salt. Add any optional spices into the batter, then add the liquid. Beat to a smooth batter.
  4. Dip the fish into the batter ensuring it is well covered.

Titli's Tips
I like to add pepper, paprika and garlic powder into my batter just to give it that little something extra.

The oil needs to be nice and hot for frying the fish otherwise your batter will be soggy.

Don’t forget to have at least one chip buttie with your fish and chips!
