Tempura comes from the word 'seasoning' .

It is the Japanese style of deep fried cooking, especially good for shellfish and vegetables.

Its a light crisp batter, the secret behind getting the right texture is ice cold water and minimal beating having lumps left in the mix is better.

Easy to cook, once the tempura batter mix is prepared, quickly dip and add to be deep fried.

Fresh Foods Cornwall Menu Suggestions...



  • 100g (approx) each of a mix of firm vegetables , cut into bite-size pieces, such as aubergine, broccoli, courgette, mushrooms, red pepper and sweet potatoes
  • 3oz Tempura Batter
  • Groundnut Oil , for deep frying

For the Sauce

  • 3 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbsp Dry Sherry
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Lemon, zest only

How to Cook:

Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. Mix together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Make the batter (see right). Cover a baking tray with sheets of kitchen paper. Start to heat a deep-fat frying pan or large wok a third full of oil and have the frying basket, or slotted spoon to hand

When the oil reaches 190C dip some of the prepared veg briefly into the batter, shake off any excess, then lower straight into the hot oil. Don't crowd the frying basket. Fry for about 2 mins until light golden and crisp, then drain on kitchen paper.

Repeat with the remaining vegetables in batches, dipping into the batter just before you fry them and remember to let the oil heat back up to temperature between each batch. Keep the tempura warm in the oven, leaving the door slightly ajar so that they stay crisp. They are best served immediately on a warm plate with the sauce alongside for dipping.

The secret is:

Don't over-mix it, or let it stand; keep the batter ice-cold and the oil hot; and don't fry too many pieces at once as this will reduce the temperature of the oil.
