This is a super simple, very adaptable recipe to batter veggies for frying. I used zucchini, but it would work with just about anything you want to dip in a light batter and fry to airy crisp perfection.
I ate these babies with (gasp!) no dipping sauce. The batter wrapper was perfect for me. They’d be great with some ranch though.
This is the best batter I’ve ever used for frying up some deliciousness. The cornstarch makes it absolutely light as air.

this sounds wonderful … it reminds me of tempura in Chinese deep frying … would you please give me a substitute for the Old Bay herb and spice mix … it has crushed red peppers in it … looking forward to trying it … 🙂
Here’s another blogger’s take on Old Bay: http://leitesculinaria.com/81715/recipes-homemade-old-bay-seasoning-mix.html
thank you so much … I’ve found that is ingredients read peppers to stay way from it … but I’ve found crushed Chilis and it works well … I truly appreciate you and your creativity
I made this and also dipped jalapeño circles into it and fried alongside zucchini. Perfect thank you
