I found this recipe on a cornstarch box in 1982 and what a great recipe. It is not only easy, but saves money not having to buy it ready made. I use it for cut up vegetables, fish and onion rings.

YUM! It was exactly what I was looking for. I used it on skinless boneless thighs (cubed). Then, I coated the fried chicken pieces with General Tso's sauce. It was better than take out. My kids ate them plain dipped in ketchup and said it was better that fast food chicken nuggets. I only added a couple of tbsp of water to the batter. Thank you.

Excellent. Yes I agree with other reviews a 1/2 cup of water did the trick. Also addded 1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning to dry ingredients to fry Sole filets and sprinkled with Lemon Pepper after. Turned out FANTASTIC! Thanks, Pressurecooker.

I always make the mistake of not writing this down. Whenever anything battered comes up, I come to this recipe and modify it accordingly (which is to say, I don't change much aside from flavor and spice).<br/><br/>It's the perfect base recipe. Now that I've got it linked here, I won't have to search for it again if I lose my recipe cards (which I always do -_- )
