I suspect this question has been asked many times. but I am a recently widowed male and still a bit of a novice cook. Dont like those recipies that turn out a bit like a leather coating when you remove the food from the cooker.

Just a mixture of flour and water makes a nice crispy batter

we commercial fisherman so cook fish every week i have found the best crispybatter is, flour fish in cornflour then dip in egg whites! try it! the cornflour makes a bit of a mess though.

1/2 cup of flour and enough beer to make it nice and creamy... . try that for starters... . It would depend on how much fish etc. you are cooking as to the 1/2 cup of flour... You could fry a banana for laterto eat with ice cream, choc sauce, splash o brandy, throw a little chopped chili at it

I use a beer batter 1/2 cup plain flour, 1/4 tsp salt add vcold beer and mix to the consistency you want, keep batter cold as it crisps up better. Make sure fish is floured lightly before you put it in the batter.
