  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water


In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt together.

Whisk in milk and water until it is the consistency that will coat the back of a spoon.

Dip your fish or chicken into the batter.

Fry in hot oil until golden.


  • Make sure you shake off excess batter before you fry your fish or chicken.
  • You can use this batter immediately but if you let it sit for an hour, it will give you a lighter, crisper finished product.
