Crisp-tastic Delight: Golden Tempura Fantasy


About the Dish:

Tempura is a traditional Japanese dish made of lightly battered and deep-fried seafood and vegetables. It is known for its light and crispy texture, making it a popular choice for appetizers or main dishes. The batter is made with a mixture of cold water, flour, and sometimes egg, which creates a light and airy coating. Tempura is typically served with a dipping sauce called tentsuyu, made from soy sauce, mirin, and dashi. It is enjoyed hot and fresh, and is a delicious option for those who love fried foods.

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: Prepare the seafood and vegetables by cleaning and cutting them into bite-sized pieces.
  • Step 2: In a bowl, combine the flour and cold water (and optional egg) to make a smooth batter. The batter should have a consistency similar to pancake batter. If it’s too thick, add more water; if it’s too thin, add more flour.
  • Step 3: Heat oil in a deep pan or pot to around 180°C (350°F).
  • Step 4: Dip the seafood and vegetables into the batter, making sure they are evenly coated. Shake off any excess batter.
  • Step 5: Carefully place the coated pieces into the hot oil, frying them in small batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  • Step 6: Fry the tempura until it becomes golden brown and crispy, which should take about 2-3 minutes per batch. Make sure to flip the pieces halfway through cooking for even browning.
  • Step 7: Once the tempura is cooked, remove it from the oil and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
  • Step 8: Serve the tempura immediately with tentsuyu dipping sauce or other condiments of your choice. Enjoy!
