wanderers club Chef's Corner - February 2017 2

Ingredients

  • 1 Free range egg
  • 1 cup very cold water
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • 1 pinch of bicarbonate of soda.
  • Zucchini cut into thin strips.
  • Cauliflower broken into small heads.
  • Carrots cut into small strips.
  • Large sauce pan filled half way with fresh oil.

 

What to do!

  • Beat the egg and icy cold water together until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour and bicarbonate of soda to the egg mixture, mix quickly but not for longer than a minute.
  • Cut up your vegetables and salt them lightly.
  • Heat your oil to 190 degrees, be careful to not heat to smoking point.
  • Dip your vegetables in the mixture and slowly drop into the oil.
  • The softer vegetables will cook quicker while the carrots may take a minute longer.
  • Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.

 

Be safe in the kitchen and always take precaution when cooking!
