Beer battered potatoes with chipotle & lime mayonnaise


  • Cook the potatoes in a large pot of lightly salted, boiling water until almost tender. Drain well and cut the potatoes in half lengthways.
  • At the same time, process the eggs and egg yolks with 2 pinches salt and the mustard for about 1 min. Then add 2 cups oil, little by little through the feeder tube, continually mixing.
  • Add the lime juice, garlic, chipotle peppers, coriander and ground pepper. Briefly mix until well combined. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • To make the batter, whisk the lager with the water until well combined in a large bowl. Then add enough flour with a small amount of baking powder, little by little, continually whisking until the mixture coats your finger.
  • Gently toss the potatoes in the batter until well coated and then deep fry in 180°C hot vegie oil in 2-3 lots until crisp. Drain well on kitchen paper towels, sprinkle with salt and serve with the mayo in a bowl on the side.
