This delicious recipe is quick and easy to make and it s ideal as a side dish.


  • 100 g flour
  • 150 g chilled beer
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 medium courgettes
  • rapeseed oil (enough cooking oil to fill a medium saucepan with about 1 inch oil)


  1. Make the batter: mix flour and salt. Add chilled beer and mix with a fork. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes (batter can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days).
  2. Wash, top and tail courgettes, then cut into 4 big pieces. Cut each piece in half then lay flat and slice into fry shapes.
  3. Heat up the oil until it sizzles when you add a courgette end. Dip the fries in the batter a few at a time, let any excess batter drip off, then place into the hot oil carefully.
  4. Let cook for 5 minutes, turning once after about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon onto kitchen paper to drain.
  5. Season and serve immediately.
