Airy Batter

Batters and Breads

Airy Batter
Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 cup sparkling water
1 pinch salt
any flowers of choice
Preparation:
1. Heat oil in a deep pot.
2. Mix the flour, water, and salt and set aside for a few minutes.
3. Add one flower at a time, drain and when completely wet, deep fry in the vegetable oil and when crisp, drain on paper towels and fry the next one, and so on.
Note: I plan to try this batter with wisteria blossoms, as suggested by a friend who remembers her father making 'Wisteria Tempura.' Aside from use with flowers, this batter can also be used for fish and other foods of the sea, for meats, and/or for vegetables.
