Sage leaves fried in batter

Ingredients for the batter
40 leaves of fresh and healthy sage
100g pastry flour
200ml cold beer
Fine salt q.s.
For frying: 500ml sunflower seed oil

Wash the sage leaves and let them accurately dry. Pour the flour in a bowl and gradually add cold beer,
mixing with a whisk to get an homogeneous batter free of lumps. Adjust the salt as you like. Dip the sage
leaves one by one into the batter. Put the sunflower seed oil on the heat and check when it reaches the
temperature of 170°C. Then gradually fry the sage leaves, some pieces each time. When the leaves get a
golden colour, remove them from the pan with a skimmer and let them dry on absorbent paper. Serve
them hot.
