I used to make this a lot when Lex was younger but I haven’t made it for a while. The muggy hot weather today and a fridge full of veggies prompted me to make it again. It’s based on an Ottolenghi recipe in his book ‘Plenty’.
For three portions you need
- A selection of veggies cut into bite sized pieces. Allow about a cup per person
- 80g self raising flour
- 80g cornflour
- 210ml fizzy water
- Oil for deep frying
Heat the oil in a large pan. Combine the batter ingredients together. Coat the vegetables in the batter and drop into hot oil. Cook until golden brown – about 3-5 mins. You’ll need to fry in batches. Serve with a selection of dipping sauces eg soya sauce, sweet chilli sauce etc.
