I tweaked the recipe. I used a mixture of flour and cornflour plus salt. and I sprayed the battered prawns (shrimp) with oil and baked them in a 200 deg C (400 deg F) oven. I used jumbo Mozambican prawns which are wild-caught and so much healthier and tastier than any farmed prawns/shrimps. It's winter here, so my husband wanted "sticky rice" as well, and I made a large and filling salad as well. I coloured the rice with turmeric because it looks nice! Thanks for the recipe!

I used rice flour and club soda and added a dash of salt. It was wonderfully light and crispy when cooked in very hot (400 degree) oil. One word of warning: If you use club soda use a larger bowl because as you mix the flour and club soda the batter foams way up (in almost comic book fashion). The rice flour makes a silkier batter as it is finer than regular flour. Thank you very much for this great recipe.

This was just OK for me. It didnt really have the crispiness and lightness of the tempura's ive had before but it was alright.
