Tempura Batter

Ingredients

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
2/3 cup ice wter
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 egg yolks
1 lb shrimp, seafood, or Broccoli florets or other mixed vegetables

This is a classic Japanese tempura batter. It works well with fresh vegetables, or seafood.

  • In a deep fryer or deep sauce pan, heat oil to 375 degrees.
  • Stir flour, cornstarch, baking powder, sugar, salt,  ice water, oil and egg yolks in a large bowl until well blended.
  • Add shrimp, seafood or vegetables and stir to coat well.
  • Pick up vegetables or seafood with tongs, letting excess drip off, and carefully place a few coated items into the oil at a time.
  • Fry until golden brown, remove and drain on a wire rack (which is best) or on paper towels.

    Best tempura batter I’ve had. I made deep fried fish and onion rings. My family has requested the onion rings be made once a week. 🙂
