Recipe by Newbie.Cook

After checking many recipes online I wanted to mix my mom's secret ingredient in fish batter. Curry. So I came up with this which was inspired by I loved this recipe. Hope you enjoy it.

I paired with fried potatoes and Recipe #504832 for a pub style fish and chips meal. The fish batter was lighter in texture than other recipes I've tried and one could taste the fish. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Whisk the egg and add to dry ingredients.
  3. Add beer gradually while mixing till the batter gets liquid enough.
  4. Dip the tilapia fillets in the batter and let it rest for a minute.
  5. In a pan add the oil and put on medium heat.
  6. Add the tilapia to the pan and fry till each side is golden brown.
  7. After they're done remove and put on paper towel and let it cool for few minutes before serving.
