1-1-1 Tempura Batter

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Krsi Sue

I use this everytime I make onion rings, hot poppers and other fried finger food. Once you use it for the first time, you won't have to reach for the recipe again, cuz it's so easy. To make more, just change the 1-1-1 to 2-2-2 or more.

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.


  1. Mix all ingredients together with whisk until smooth.
  2. Dip your favorite food for frying, remove and fry the food in hot grease.
