Mix all the dry ingredients together with 5ml salt in a large bowl.

Make a well in the centre of the ingredients. Add the egg and 375ml water to the well. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the centre. Mix until smooth.

Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Once it is hot, add spoonfuls of the batter. Deep-fry until crisp. To test if they are done, cut one in half and make sure the middle is dry.

Tip of the day

Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
