Batter for Fish and Chicken

Tempura Style Batter

Adapted from Gardenguru (Joe)

1 cup flour

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking powder

Salt and pepper

Soda Water or beer

NOTE: Depending on what I am using the batter for, I sometimes add one or two egg yolks.
Mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt and pepper together. Add enough soda water (or beer) to make a batter that is slightly thinner than a pancake batter. Note: I prefer a thinner, crispy, tempura style batter, for a thicker batter use less soda water.
