      To make beer batter:

    1. In a large bow combine flour, cornflour, baking powder, and salt. Blend egg and beer, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don't worry about a few lumps).
    2. To make yoghurt sauce:

    3. In a medium bowl, mix together yoghurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with green chilli, capers, oregano, cumin, dill and cayenne.
    4. To make tacos:

    5. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 190 degrees C.
    6. Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper. Lightly fry tortillas; not too crisp. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, top with shredded cabbage, then white sauce.
