 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
      1/2  cup           cornstarch
    1      cup           water
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1      teaspoon      sugar
    1      teaspoon      oil
 
 Mix all of the ingredients together and blend until there are no lumps.
 Preheat the oil in your deep fat fryer to the proper temperature for the
 food you are cooking. Dry the fish or the vegetables with a paper towel and
 dip into the batter. Place in the hot oil one piece at a time. Try to keep
 the pieces from colliding until the batter has had a chance to set (which it
 does almost instantly). Cook until the batter has turned a golden brown,
 remove to a paper towel to drain and serve at once.
 
 YIELD: enough for about 2 pounds of fish or vegetables

 NOTES : This is very good to use for zucchini, broccoli, peppers, green
 beans, onion rings and any other firm vegetable.
