1/1 Photo of Deep Fried Vegetables
We had deep fried calamari and vegetables at a restaurant and my Wife LOVED it, so when we got home, I experimented for a few hours, and this is what I came up with. It can be used as a base batter recipe for deep fried calamari and vegetables, shrimp alone or with veggies, chicken, broccoli, you name it. It's versatile and delicious! I'm writing it as though it's for just veggies. The ingredients listed is enough for 1-1 1/2 pounds of meat, veggies, or a combination of both. Substitute principle ingredient as you wish.
