How To Batter Like A Scot

Just, like, don't do it every day. k? k.

Okay, This is the same recipe that I used for the battered seitan a while ago. It's crunchy and crisp, but not incredibly greasy or heavy. Here I've used it to batter some tofu nuggets:
(Yeah, yeah, I know battered tofu and potato wedges does not a healthy meal make, but I was feeling like slobbing out, okay?)

Ok so here's the dealio:

To a fairly large bowl, add:
1 cup flour
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp oil
1/4 soy milk
Mix up until it's good and mixed and then add enough water to make it nice and thick and gloopy, for me this is 3/4 cup.

Makes enough to have lots of battering fun. Try battering a vegan mars type bar. Or not, evs.

Anyhoo, enjoy, but not too much.

ETA - You don't need a deep fryer to use this batter. I don't own one, and all my battery goodness is shallow fried.

Wow, so I just happened upon your blog, and not only does the food look wonderful, but the photography is excellent as well.

The battered tofu and potato wedges, while maybe not the healthiest snack look wonderful! This looks like something I could feed to my fairly picky omni partner that he wouldn't complain about.

Did you have any sort of dipping sauce to go with these or do they shine bright enough all on their own?

I teamed them with an equally unhealthy garlic and herb mayo, but I imagine ketchup would be just as good too.

You know, if you're gonna do unhealthy, you may as well go all out!

I am traveling until early next week, so will have to wait until then to try this. Damn! :) I will report in on how I do with the battery goodness.

Official report: The batter is amazing, and worked great with shallow frying. It is very dangerous for me to know about such good batter.... Thanks!

Lelly said...

Glad to hear you liked it. It is a dengerous thing to know. Were just going to have to restrain ourselves...
