Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Generous pinch salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • 4 ounces green beans, halved if long
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 lemon, sliced into very thin round slices
Directions

In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, pour enough oil to fill the pan about a third of the way. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 375 degrees F.

Mix the flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk in the water to make a thin batter. Dip the green beans, zucchini and lemons in the batter and carefully place them in the saucepan. Fry the vegetables until lightly browned, 1 to 3 minutes. Drain the vegetables on paper towels and immediately sprinkle with salt. Serve the vegetables warm.
