Beat the eggs really hard. I find my Hell’s Handle fish slice (Mercer) is ideal whisk/beater.
Slowly add in the milk and stir, then whisk/beat hard, you need to see bubbles in the mixture.
Sift in the flour, I use my tea strainer, (I don’t have a large one), whilst still whisking or beating. It takes a while but it is worth it, you need a smooth batter.
Add your Gin and splash of tonic during this process.
(Have one yourself)
Leave mixture covered for 45 minutes.
Now the dangerous bit.
Put the oil in the Omnia and get the oil hot. Remembering never to take your eye off it, if you are doing this in your Van or Motorhome, never, ever, not even for a second, take your eye off it. Don’t start a conversation on your phone, fluffing up the cushions, or re-levelling the van....
I use virgin olive oil for cooking, but in this instance, you must use vegetable or sunflower. I now know why they put the smoke alarm directly above the kitchen area. Mine works effectively, I talk too much…...
Once oil is hot, (on high gas) pour in the mixture, it should sizzle, put the lid on and wait 20 minutes.
Only after 20 minutes have a "Sneaky Pete” peep, if the lid rises a few centimetres, you are going to hit the jackpot.
If looks a bit under done, leave a minute or two, but after 20 minutes it should be cooked. Take off stove, let it cool for a minute with the lid on.
Take the lid off your Omnia and with all the utensils in your drawer, get it out. My fish slice works well with a wooden spatula.
Then serve with ice cream, jam, fruit, cream, sausages, onion gravy, or even chilli con-carne, Yorkshire Pudding goes well as an accompaniment to sweet or savoury dishes.
