This is the only batter recipe I use, and I find it works the best for all types of foods.
Make and share this Basic Beer Batter recipe from Food.com.

- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 3⁄4 cup flat beer
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Combine all dry ingredients.
- Add liquid ingredients and mix well.
- Allow batter to chill in refrigerator for a least 1 hour before using.
- Dip food in batter and place into hot oil.
This had a great flavor! We did fried zucchini sticks and chicken strips with this batter. Both were fantastic and turned out well. I found that rolling each in flour first helped the batter to stick a little better. Also, drop these into the oil, don't use a basket. The batter likes to incorporate itself into the mesh.
I used it to make chicken fingers! Next time I'm going to add more garlic and cayenne to give it more flavor! My husband loved it!
After searching for a good batter for onion rings, this is very good. I made the recipe last night for my hubby.He is not afraid to speak his mind, if ya know what I man?LOL! Anyway,he really liked it, so for him,thank you, and for me, a bigger thank you! The onion rings had "flavor", not just bland like so many are. It's useless to have a good presentation, if there is no flavor. So. again, many thanks.
