Deep Fried Radishes

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
2 T. sugar
2 T. cider vinegar
2 T. pineapple juice
soy sauce to taste
2 tsp. cornstarch, mixed with 2 tsp. water
vegetable oil for deep frying
sliced radishes

Mix together the flour, cornstarch and baking powder with enough cold water to form the consistency of heavy cream. Make sure there are no lumps. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. To make the dipping sauce, heat together the sugar, cider vinegar and juice in a small pan. Bring to a boil. Add enough soy sauce to color the mixture lightly. Add the cornstarch, mixed with water. Return to a boil and cook until thickened. Heat the oil to 375 degrees. Dip radishes into the chilled batter and allow excess to drip off before gently placing it, using a slotted spoon, in the hot oil. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
