Very good for a basic, 3-ingredient batter. For a little more flavor I added salt and pepper to the mix. Since I was cooking just for myself, I cut it in half, using 1/2 cup ice water and 1/2 cup flour, but still used a whole egg. Can't stop eating my tempura red pepper strips. Will try it on sweet potato next, as that's my favorite tempura ingredient.
This was great with fried fish! I substituted a little cornstarch and beer instead of water. I will use this recipe again and again. My only complaint was that it made a lot more than I needed so I will need to get more fish next time.
Wins in the easy category! I used 1/2 c flour and 1/2 cornstarch, plus some salt and pepper. Used on nugget-sized pieces of frozen catfish, 2 minutes, flipped, 3 minutes, flipped again for about a minute to brown. Don't do too many at a time because it lowers the temperature.
Love that this is such a simple recipe to remember. I did add about 1/4 cup corn starch to lighten it up just a bit. I also added some salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper to give it some taste. I did a small test batch of mushrooms, just 3 or 4, to get the seasoning adjusted before frying up the rest of the veggies (red and yellow bell pepper strips, cauliflower, mushrooms, onions, and zucchini). For a little added zip a dash or two of Tony Chachere's is perfect! (11)
I was looking for the basic recipe for this version. Oh and if it's too "bland". Add some sesame oil to your frying oil. Gives it a savory nutty flavor. I use vegetable oil as that's what I fry in the most. A nice dashi or my chili teriyaki recipe is a good add to it. Sweet potatoes are my favorite fried food.
yummy and easy!! boyfriend used it to make deep fried chicken wings and deep fried dill pickles!! thanks Krsi!!
super easy to make, good stuff!
This was an easy but very bland recipe. It seemed to be missing something. I did try to fix it by adding salt but it was still too tasteless for us.
i loved this recipe it was so easy to remember. so easy, i was a bit skeptical but my vegetable tempura came out perfect! don't worry about cooking your vegetables first folks! i fried up broccoli, cauliflower and carrots and everything came out fine. i did make sure the pieces i fried were bite size to ensure that they would cook thoroughly. also i did add two tablespoons of cornstarch to the batter. i don't think it made much of a difference though...
