Fish & Chips

Have tried doing this dish but unsuccessful, so did it again last weekend. And this round the result was good, at least the batter didn't drop off when deep frying. Recipe from Danny Cheok.


1 kg Fish fillet

2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2tsp pepper

200g self raising flour
100g corn flour
100 g rice flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

500g ice water

3tbsp oil


1) Rinse fish fillet. Marinade the fish fillet with sesoning for half hour.

2) For batter, add all dry ingredient in a bowl, the pour in water bit by bit to avoid lumps.Oil should be last to add to make the batter more smooth.

3) Add about 500ml oil to wok, heat up oil using medium heat, test the oil by dropping abit of batter, if batter bubble and float very fast, then its ready for deep frying.

4)Dry the fish fillet with paper towel, dip it in batter and place into oil. Fry till golden color. Dish and serve with tartar sauce.
