We dont deep-fry a lot but when we do..we do a WHACK of stuff. I've tried numerous recipes and this by far is the cheapest, tastiest and works with everything. Fish and onion rings are phenomenol. Spices are to your own taste and can be adjusted to whatever taste you want. Believe me...I've added everything from curry to southwestern tastes, this 'basic' recipe is just a guideline to the spices and taste you are looking for. ENJOY, it's awesome.
