                              ½ cup flour

                              ½ cup milk

                              ½ cup buttermilk baking mix

                              1 tsp. salt

                              1 tsp. baking powder

                              ½ tsp. garlic powder

                              1/4 cup minced onion

                              1 Tbsp. fresh parsley

                              12-15 baby artichokes, trimmed and halved

                                         vegetable oil for frying.

Small bowl:

Beat egg & milk well.

Beat in flour, baking mix, salt, baking powder, garlic powder.

Stir well. (Should be nice and blended)

Stir in: onion & parsley

Dip artichoke pieces. Thinly coat.

(If batter is too thick for this to happen–add little milk to thin)

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. (Depth should be about 2-3 inches high)

Fry artichokes a few at a time. About 6-8 minutes.

(Too many at once will drop oil temperature too much)

When nice and golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon.

Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt.

Serve—then continue cooking few at a time.

(Even cooking comes from even temperature oil)
