In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for vinegar carrots and keep in fridge.
Pat the fish fillet dry with kitchen towel making sure, they are completely dry and no water drips out of it.
In a medium bowl, mix together cornstarch, pepper, chili and salt.
Now take 1 fish fillet and coat it evenly with the cornstarch mixture on both sides (Dredge) keep aside on a plate and follow the same process for all the remaining fillet.
In a large bowl, pour cold beer and mix in flour and baking powder till a smooth pancake like batter is prepared.(Making sure no lumps are formed and the mixture is not runny or dry).
Heat oil in a non-stick pot for 5-6min or till you see some fumes starting from the oil.
Now using a tong (Chimta), take 1 fish fillet at a time, dip it in the beer mixture evenly coating both side and tap it in the side of the bowl to remove any excess batter.
Now place the battered fish fillet in hot oil and cook till both sides are evenly golden brown (4-5min)
Follow step 7-8 till all fillets are coated and fried.
Dab any excess oil off the fried beer battered fish using a paper towel and sprinkle some salt on it.
