These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written except I used seasoning salt instead of salt. These were good but I thought they could have had more flavor. The batter could use more seasoning. I also cut back the water to 1/3 cup as others suggested.
By far the best batter I have found for vegetables. Could probably work for just about anything else too! Like others, I found I needed to adjust the amount of water. I believe 1/3 cup is what you should shoot for. Delicious.
I have made these twice and froze them. I did add some seasoning salt, and I think one time some Parmesan cheese. Hubby says they are even better than the ones I serve at work. That is why I made them twice. To reheat he just puts them in the oven, I don't know what temp, or how long. He does the when I am at work. Finally know how long to reheat them, at 425 F for 10 minutes.
I loved this recipe. It was nice and easy! I hate dipping stuff in egg and then this and then egg and then that. This is just one dip and then fry. It reminded me of a tempura batter. I will try this with other things. I'm gonna try green beans next...YUM!!!
I give it a 5 with some changes. I read there was too much water in the recipe...not the case. Like a good cook add all dry ingredients first then add the (pre-beaten) egg and water. I used 2 tsp. of salt. 1 tsp. of garlic powder. 1 tsp. of onion powder and 1/4 tsp. of paprika. It turned out tasting like a beautiful Fair Zucchini! Seasoning is important. Please add dry ingredients first and then judge how much water to use. I actually used a smidge more water than required. Great recipe with more spices!
When I see a recipe with so many good reviews, I expect it to be something special. Sorry to say, this was not. Although the consistency of the batter was ok, I thought the taste was very bland, very disappointing...just not worth all the mess. I ended up peeling the crust off my zucchini slices and reheating them with garlic and parmesan and eating it that way instead.
I think my shoes would taste good dipped and fried in this batter, that's how light, crisy & flavorful it was! Will use many times again. I followed the recipe exactly, but let the batter sit as others had suggested. It thickened, and it seemed to stick beautifully to everything, except the zucchini! It was well worth the challange because the end result was out of this world! Thanks for sharing!
Very simple and tasty recipe. I found stirring the batter frequently help "the goodness" really stand out while frying.
This was great! Very good consistency using 1/3 cup water ... 1/2 cup would be too runny. As was, when we added the veggies, the mixture became too runny, so we added a bit more flour. The finished product was crisp, flavorful, and we loved it! Hubby told me to keep this recipe for use with all kinds of foods, which is a high compliment, coming from him!
Having read some of the other reviews, I started out with half the water in this recipe. I ended up adding the rest, though. The batter clings to the vegetables and makes for a beautiful, crisp finished product. I was looking for a batter recipe that doesn't use beer, as I didn't have any on hand and very much wanted something deep fried! This certainly lives up to my expectations! :)
