Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and pepper into a bowl.

Beat the egg into this mixture adding a dash of milk if necessary to obtain a smooth, thick batter. Allow batter to rest for 20-30 minutes to allow the flour particles to swell and the batter to bind.

Combine all the ingredients for the aioli and mix well.

Pour enough olive oil into a frying pan to cover the base generously and heat gently.

Using a fork, dip the tomatoes into the batter, making sure they are well coated. Allow any excess batter to drip off.

Shallow fry in the hot oil in batches until golden (+- 3 minutes on each side). Drain on kitchen paper and serve warm with your fresh basil aioli.
