Classic Fish-N-Chips

Classic Fish -N- Chips
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 pounds cod fillets

DIRECTIONS

Place potatoes in a medium-size bowl of cold water.  In a separate medium-size mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg;  stir until the mixture is smooth.  Let mixture stand for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oil in a large pot or electric skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Fry the potatoes in the hot oil until they are tender. Drain them on paper towels.
Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil. Fry until the fish is golden brown. If necessary, increase the heat to maintain the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) temperature. Drain well on paper towels.
Fry the potatoes again for 1 to 2 minutes for added crispness.
