I made a batter from milk, flour, and an egg - plus salt and cayenne pepper. I dried out the pickles with kitchen paper, rolled them in flour, dipped them in the batter, rolled them in the flour again, and popped them into a pan of hot oil.
I ate them with a cheeseburger on the side.
They weren't bad, but to be honest my batter recipe wasn't much cop. They need to be a bit cripsier. Maybe breadcrumbs would work better. Or maybe I should just read a recipe, rather than making stuff up on the spot. The dip was good though.
