Hi Zulma,

You can entirely replace water to beer or soda water. The bubbles from the drink will produce lighter and crunchier texture. This won't require the use of baking powder. Yet, you can still maintain if you prefer for better texture. I hope this helps. I think I can make a recipe of it. lol

Zulma Burgos-Dudgeon from United Kingdom on August 08, 2018:

You are very welcome.

Could I be cheeky and ask if you can use beer for the batter recipe? And if so, how much? I'd like to try it for fish and chips this weekend.

Hello Zulma,

It is nice to know that you and your family loved the recipe. I actually use this batter recipe in most of my dishes. I just give it a twist at times. Check out my other recipes too. For sure you will love it as well! Thanks you for the compliment!

Just wanted to let you know I tried this recipe this weekend and my family loved it. The balance of flavours was spot on and the batter was light and crispy. Couldn't have been more pleased. This is definitely going my list of 'please make again' dishes.

Thank you for posting this.
