Tiny #Kitchen, #Culinary Mission: #Beer #Batter

Beer Batter

A good beer batter can immensely improve the flavor of food you might make when frying. There isn’t anything particularly challenging with making a beer batter – it mostly has to do with getting ratios correct and using a decent, dark, high gravity beer. For this one, we opted for a good scotch ale. Once you have your batter, you can dip most anything into it and fry in hot oil.

  2. Make space for the egg, then crack it in and lightly beat it in that area. Stir the egg in to the dry mix.IMG_20140912_214159
  3. Add the beer, being careful not to pour too quickly and get too much foam. Stir in until you end up with a beer batter dough.IMG_20140912_214847
