Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Self-rising flour works best in this recipe, but if you can’t find it, you can substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • tip 2
    Be sure to not crowd the fryer or pan, only frying several florets at a time.
  • tip 3
    Try beer-battering and deep-frying other vegetables, such as green beans, cauliflower florets or zucchini or yellow squash slices.
