Tempura is a classic Japanese dish consisting of battered and deep-fried seafood, vegetables, or sometimes meat. What’s in the tempura can vary, but the most important element of what tempura is comes from the iconic light and crispy coating. Tempura was brought to Japan by the Portuguese and became extremely popular as one of Japan’s first fried foods and it quickly became a mainstay of Japanese cooking.
Tempura is a simple batter to make but requires a few specific steps. Lightly mix together an egg, a cup of ice water, and a cup of flour to make your tempura. The batter should be a little lumpy and when you’re ready to fry, coat your food in cake flour then dip it into the batter. From there, add it to your frying oil and you’re good to go! If your tempura doesn’t come out crispy enough, adding some cornstarch to your batter can help. This basic method of using tempura can be applied to making so many great tempura dishes!
