Occasionally I like to fry up some batter-coated veggies when we have an excess and are feeling indulgent However, I can't seem to find a batter recipe that I like. Everything I've tried so far ends up thick and hard. They taste ok, but I'm really looking for something tried and true. Any suggestions? Am I doing something wrong?

TIA!

My preference is for a beer batter. We use homebrew, but I would recommend something full-bodied, a microwbrew preferably, an ale works well.

Then just use equal parts (by volume) of flour and beer. That's it. If you're going to use a whole (12 oz) bottle of beer, you want 12 oz (1 1/2 c) flour. That makes a LOT though. For the two of us, I might use 1/2 c each of beer and flour and have DH drink the rest of the beer.

This makes lovely onion rings, did fairly well to batter fish (I overcooked it though), mushrooms, zucchini all did well with this batter.

My DH totally gave that recipe a I'll try that tonight--I'm about to lose a bunch of green peppers if I don't use them. Thanks!
