This frugal batter recipe is great for deep frying fish if you want it to taste restaurant-style. I had fish to fry, but had no beer to make a beer batter or Tempura mix. All the recipes I knew took one of those two ingredients, and I knew I could make a batter without an unnecessary (and expensive) trip to the grocery store.
This batter is SO GOOD that people ask for the recipe while they’re eating it, no kidding! Why is it frugal? It’s made from inexpensive basic kitchen ingredients that most people keep on hand. This recipe is written for a deep fryer.
