DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk the beer into the flour until just combined (will be a bit lumpy).
  • Stir in salt and cayenne.
  • Peel sweet potato and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  • Using a large heavy saucepan, deep fryer or wok, heat 2 inches of oil over medium-high heat to 350°F.
  • In batches of 3 or 4 pieces, dredge veggies in batter to coat completely, letting excess drip off.
  • Fry, turning, until golden coloured (2 to 3 minutes).
  • With a slotted spoon, remove cooked vegetables from pan and transfer to paper towel lined, rimmed baking sheet to drain off excess oil.
  • Season with a pinch of sea salt if desired.
  • Keep warm in oven set to 200F while frying remaining veggies.
  • Each diner should have a little bowl of soy sauce, a tiny dish of grated white radish (daikon) and a few lemon wedges to season his/her food.
  • Serve with hot rice.
