My freezer had two big pieces of Tilapia fillets. You can use any chunky boneless fish for this recipe. And  chips are definitely easy to make.




So yes, I gave into my cravings and decided to try an easy recipe and of course without beer batter.
For the first time, I made homemade fish and chips, following a simple recipe. You just  cannot beat home cooked chips and the fried fish. It was a easy batter and the ingredients were available in the kitchen
So do note down the recipe.

5. Beat the eggs and milk in a shallow bowl.
