Tempura

(1 Votes)

Tempura is a fried Japanese favorite that can be re-created in your own home. It's fast and so tasty!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch, plus additional for dusting
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Assorted vegetable, meat and/or seafood chunks (see Options)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup cornstarch, the baking powder, sugar, salt, and peppers; mix well. Add the cold water. Cover loosely and let mixture stand for 1 to 2 hours.
     
  2. In a deep skillet, heat 1 inch of oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Lightly dust your favorite vegetable, meat and/or seafood chunks with cornstarch then dip in the batter. Gently place in the hot oil and cook until golden, turning if necessary. Remove to a paper towel-lined platter and continue with additional items.
Options

Use broccoli and cauliflower florets, whole medium-sized mushrooms, carrot and zucchini slices, or chunks of chicken and shrimp – whatever your favorites are!
