  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • About 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 3/4 cups club soda
  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 large shallots, sliced 1/4 in. thick and broken into rings
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 250°. Fill a deep pot with 2 in. oil, insert a deep-fry thermometer, and heat to 375° over medium-high heat.
  2. 2. Mix together flours, cornmeal, baking soda, and 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in club soda until blended.
  3. 3. Dip a large handful of green beans into batter. Using tongs, lift beans from batter, letting a little of excess drain, and lower a portion at a time into oil. Fry until golden brown, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large baking sheet lined with paper towels, salt to taste, and put in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining beans and the shallots; keep oil between 375° and 385°.
  4. 4. Stir together mayonnaise with chili powder in a small bowl for dipping.
  5. Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.

The beans will cook tender-crisp in the same time it takes to brown the coating.
