Slice whole pickles into thick slices. It's all a matter of opinion and taste. My family prefers slices. But you can use hamburger chips, or spears also.
In a bowl mix all remaining ingredients to make batter. Batter should be the consistency of pancake batter. add more water to thin more flour to thicken
dip spears into batter and fry until golden brown. Place on a paper towel to cool slightly. If the oil is to hot batter will not adhere if its to cool pickles will be greasy. Between Medium and High works best on my stove.
