Here’s a simple recipe for tempura batter. This is a great way to whip up some dinner if you happen to have some shrimp, veggies or even leftover chicken/steak/pork. It only takes 5 minutes to whisk up the batter and another 5 to cook everything and you’re all set to go. A quick dinner on the cheap is some tempura chicken on top of Ramen noodles with some hoison sauce and sriracha.
- 1 Egg
- 1 Cup Ice Cold Water
- 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- Whip Egg, Water and Flour together thoroughly but, don’t over mix. Small lumps help to add crunchiness once they fry up.
- Cut up Chicken, Beef or Vegetables into smaller pieces, about 1/2 inch cubes, as this batter cooks up quickly so whatever you’re breading, you want to make sure it’s not too big that it will take more than 3-5 minutes to cook fully.
- Dip Meat or Vegetables in until completely coated then deep fry in HOT oil (350F) until breading is golden brown.
