I seem to always crave fish and chips on a Friday night. Its a typical British friday night dinner from the local chippie. Its also a tradition that my family has adopted while living in America. However, unlike England, you must make everything at home as there is no local chippie. Seeing that we are living in Germany and have Köln’s famous Kölsch available just about everywhere, I decided to put a little twist on the recipe.
These are great with another beer to drink and a side of mushy peas. A little salt and malt vinegar sprinkled on top and its just like you’re in England!
The secret to the crunchy batter is the corn flour. It makes the batter light and crunchy, not so doughy like you sometimes get. The secret to chippie style chips is to par boil them for a little bit beforehand.
