Recipe: Classic Fish And Chips

One day I suddenly craving this dish. So, I search on how to make it. I thought I need to buy a lot of stuff but it seem that most of its ingredients are something that already at home. I just need to buy the fish and potatoes. I got 3 slices of white fish for about 18 Ringgit and 3 potatoes for less than one Ringgit! When I think about the price, it really worth it if we can cook this dish at home because it save a lot of money. I choose the classic one because it feel like more original. Feel free to look into the original recipe here.

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
  • 1 cup all-purposed flour (aka wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil or cooking oil
  • Cod fillets (any white fish can do)
  1. Place the potatoes (the strips one) in a bowl of cold water. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg, stir until the mixture is soft. Let mixture stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oil in a pan.
  3. Fry the potatoes in the hot oil until they are tender. Drain them on paper towels.
  4. Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil. Fry until the fish is golden brown.
  5. Fry the potatoes again for 1 or 2 minutes for added crispness.
  1. If you fry the fish using the same hot oil right after you fry the potatoes, it may burnt. It's better if you wait a while so it cool down a bit.
  2. Potatoes taste better if you sprinkle salt over it.
  3. To make the fish easier to cook, you can cut the fillet into half.
