Day 14 – Japanese Week Day 6 – Tempura

Our local Pub Grub restaurant serves this dish – A fish feast. On this dish you get a piece of battered fish, scampi, butterfly prawns and, wait for it, Tempura Prawns. They are beyond lovely. Unlike typical ‘Chip Shop’ batter which is thick and greasy these are light and crispy. I’ve had Tempura things from Japanese places to and they’re even more lovely. Moreish too. 

I thought I should try making some myself, I’ve also got mushrooms and peppers to use up from the bolognese. Now traditionally tempura batter is made with just cold water and flour though eggs, baking soda, spices etc can be added. The batter is mixed with chopsticks for only a few seconds, leaving the lumps that when combined with the chill factor create the light and fluffy crispness.

    This light and fluffy crispness wins the hearts of everyone, especially kids, which makes it very good for family occasions.

      I love tempura, but getting it right seems hard.

    Waah! Japanese dishes! 🙂 I dunno how to make them (hopeless when it comes to cooking) but i do love to eat them! It’s quite interesting to know how they were made

      Glad you liked them! The maki was easier that I thought it would be and you can add anything. I didn’t like trying to cut it though!!

        I’m new here in your blog.
        What’s the main culture you’re focusing on? Are all in asia?

        No the plan is to try as many different dishes around the world as possible in the year. I just particularly like Asian food and only had to buy one lot of rice while I planned a bit lol. Any suggestions?

    That sounds good! Dishes around the world sounds really interesting! And given that i still haven’t had the chance to roam the globe (haha, i’m still in school busy with my studies), that would be a fun read for me! Keep doing what you do, I’ll read some of your posts soon! 🙂
