This a great recipe for family parties or barbecues, this recipe will make approx 48 wedges depending on the size of potatoes, I like to use roosters for these as they have a lovely crisp skin but any good baking potato can be used. Add a teaspoon of paprika for spicy ones.
4 medium potatoes scrubbed
110g plain flour
60ml milk 1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
1/2 tsp pepper
120 ml of “99”
Pierce the potatoes and microwave on high for 10-12 minutes until tender turning once, please make sure you pierce them otherwise they will explode.
Meanwhile in a bowl whisk the flour,milk,egg,salt,oil and pepper until smooth then stir in the beer set aside for at least half an hour. when your potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each potato into 12 wedges.
Heat your deep fat fryer to 190C and dip each wedge into the batter, remember to remove the basket as they will stick, fry in batches for 3-4 minutes until golden brown, drain on kitchen towel and keep warm repeat process until you have finished. Serve with soured cream or your favourite dips.
