Combine all of your dry and wet batter ingredients (in the order of the recipe) in a medium to large bowl. Pick a bowl with a large enough rim in which to place or dip foods in to coat.
Dip, flip, and dunk food items in batter. You want foods to be completely covered and coated evenly for the best—and tastiest—results.
Lower foods into oil slowly with a slotted spoon or tongs to keep hands away from any splashes. Fry foods for as long as your recipe calls for while routinely turning to ensure even cooking.
Set up a cooling station next to your stove to easily transfer foods from the fryer. Place food on a cooling rack so excess oil can drip off.
