The traditional tempura
Light and fluffy tempura is Japan’s contribution to the world of deep-fried foods. The batter-coated seafood and vegetables are traditionally fried in sesame oil and served with either a tiny pool salts。
How is tempura prepared
Freshly made batter is a must for tasty tempura. It has to be freshly mixed using cold water and left slightly lumpy with plenty of air bubbles trapped in it to give the batter a crisp texture when fried. Ingredients are cut into specific shapes that allow them to cook evenly. They are then dipped into the batter to create a thin, light coating that will fry quickly.
It varies round location. For example, in Kansai, tempura is served with salt. In Kanto, tempura is served with ‘tentsuyu’, a dipping sauce made from dashi broth, mirin, and soy sauce. Tempura can also be served ‘oroshi’ style with grated daikon radish and ponzu, a citrus and soy- based sauce.
