  1. In a small bowl, combine the rice flour and 1/2 cup soda water. Stir until blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and cornstarch. Sift into a medium bowl. Stir in the remaining 2 1/2 cups soda water, salt and cayenne. Lastly add the rice flour mixture. Allow to rest in the refrigerator at least 1 hour before use. Check the consistency of the batter by dipping a piece of vegetable and cook in a preheated deep fryer at 350 to 375 degrees F. Additional soda water may be needed to adjust thickness.
