My family loves this recipe. I normally add teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of soy sauce to the batter to give it a little more flavor. I also strain the sauce after it is made because my family doesn't like the chunks of vegetables in it. It is absolutely delicious!
Wonderful recipe. Tried in a frying pan and then a deep fryer and decided the only way to make these is using the deep fryer.
excellent recipe that the whole family really enjoyed! Even the one who doesn't like tomatoes!
I have made this several times. The chicken batter is amazing! We've used the batter with shrimp as well with great results.
