This batter can be used for fish, prawn or vegetables e.g. onion rings, eggplant, cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potatoes, green beans, asparagus spears or whatever else you desire. Its not as light as some and much easier to coat your ingredient. I serve over a bed of fried egg noodles and garnish with a red chili.
