Ingredients

10 courgette flowers

Flour 75 g

Corn flour 75

Bicarbonate of soda 1tsp

Very cold soda water 250 ml

Frying oil

 Method

Mix the flower with the water slowly until a batter consistency it obtained (like single cream).

Heat the oil in a small high sided pan

Take away the stamen from the flowers then dip the flowers one by one in the flour batter and put in the very hot oil for about 3 minutes until the batter is swollen and looks golden

Tip out onto a plate covered with kitchen towel to adsorb the excess oil and sprinkle with salt.
