    1      Tsp.          baking powder

 Prepare food to be fried (see suggested foods below).
 Thaw frozen foods completely before frying. 
 Dry food completely before dipping into batter. Use Fritter Batter with chopped
 or shredded foods; use Thin Batter when you want to retain
 shape of food. Heat vegetable oil (2 to 3-inches) in deep-fat
 fryer or kettle to 375 degrees. Beat batter ingredients in bowl with
 hand beater until smooth.
 To prepare fritters: Stir about 1 cup suggested food
 into Fritter Batter; drop by level tablespoonfuls into hot oil
 and fry until completely cooked, about 5 minutes. Drain.
 Suggested foods for fritters: Chopped cooked shrimp or
 ham, cubed luncheon meat, corn, chopped apple or banana,
 pineapple cubes.
 To deep-fry foods: Coat suggested food with flour. Dip
 food into Thin Batter with tongs or fork, allowing excess
 batter to drip into bowl; fry in hot oil until golden brown.
 Drain.
 Suggested foods for deep-frying: 
 Whole shrimp, scallops, oysters, fish fillets, chicken pieces (partially cooked
 ),
 cutlets, eggplant slices, cauliflowerets, onion rings, zucchini
 slices, pineapple slices, bananas (cut into fourths), apple
 slices and apricot halves.
 **If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and
 salt.
 ***If adding salted foods to the batter, omit salt.
