Homemade Beer Battered Fish & Chips

A classic dish that you can now make at home!


  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the turmeric, cornflour, flour and baking powder together and season with salt and pepper. Remove a tablespoon or two from the mixture and store in a small bowl.

  • In a jug, combine the beer and water and slowly tip in the flour mixture while stirring to remove lumps. Once the batter is smooth leave to rest for an hour.

  • Peel the potatoes, slice and preheat the oven to 180C. Add the chips to a pan of boiling water, boil until they become slightly tender, drain and place on to a baking tray.

  • Drizzle oil over the chips, scatter a tablespoon or two of the flour mixture and toss, making sure the chips are coated.

  • Place in the oven for half an hour, turning every 10 minutes until golden brown.

  • Pour vegetable oil in to a large saucepan, heat, dry the fish and toss in the flour mixture. Carefully add the fish to the vegetable oil and fry for 8 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Carefully remove the fish from the oil, pat with kitchen towel to remove excess oil and season with salt.
