I’m starting with the “National Day Of” feature ~ January 7th is National Day Of Tempura.
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup cold, plain sparkling water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan sea salt
Various cut up vegetables
Mix batter just before using. In large pot, add oil & heat to 350 – 375°f. On a plate, pour out cornstarch.
Quickly mix tempura batter.
Dip each piece of vegetable in the cornstarch then in the batter.
Using tongs, carefully place each piece in the hot oil.
Cook until golden, then flip & cook on 2nd side until golden.
Carefully remove from oil & set aside on paper towels to drain.
Working quickly, repeat with remaining vegetables.
Green onions/sliced yellow onions
What vegetables would you add to this list? Comment & let me know.
Happy National Day Of Tempura.
