FISH AND CHIPS
6 fish dory (frozen and thawed)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon salt & pepper (plus seasoning of your choice,secukup rasa, etc)
1 1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon dill (optional)
oil (for frying)
Mix together 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup cornstarch, baking powder ,salt & pepper in a bowl. Stir and add enough water to make a batter about the consistency of thin pancake batter. You don't want it too thick, just thick enough to nicely coat a spoon. Season the batter to taste if desired with seasoning of your choice. I suggest "secukup rasa" seasoning and set aside.In another bowl, mix together remaining 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup cornstarch.Heat oil in a deep pan .
Dredge the fish in the dry flour/cornstarch mixture. Shake off any excess.This allows the batter to stick to the fish.
Dip dredged fish into batter allowing any excess to drip off before carefully adding the fish to the hot oil.
Cook the fish one or two pieces at a time until golden brown.Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle dill on top.
Serve while hot with mix vege, fries, mayonnaise and chill sauce.
