Cut the tips from the wings and chop each wing in half at the joint

  4. Once oil is at temperature, In a bowl mix dry ingredients for batter , and then add water and whisk together well
  5. (best done in a few batches) Using tongs dip each wing into the in the batter making sure its well coated and transfer straight into the oil.
  6. Fry until light gold colours, about 5-7 minutes and transfer to a rack
