Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F.
The first thing to do is prepare the black pudding. This can be cut into 1 inch pieces these are really perfect size for snacks or split the pudding through the middle, then cut in half to give you quarters.
The next stage is to make the batter. sift the self-raising flour into a bowl and whisk in the lager, making sure you are left with a good thick consistency. This will increase the lightness of the finished dish, creating an almost souffle effect.
Lightly dust the black/chilli pudding with the flour and then dip in the batter. This is best done with a cocktail stick, completely covering the pudding itself while preventing your hands from becoming covered.
Providing that the oil has been heated to 350 degrees F, the cooking time will be between 3-5 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Remove from the fryer, shaking off any excess fat. Lightly sprinkle with salt and serve.
