Tempura Batter

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


  1. Whip Egg, Water and Flour together thoroughly but, don’t over mix. Small lumps help to add crunchiness once they fry up.
  2. 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.
  3. Dip Meat or Vegetables in until completely coated then deep fry in HOT oil (350F) until breading is golden brown.
