    Esuka's Note:

    I got this recipe out of an authentic Japanese Cuisine book, I tried it because it was simple and seemed legit and it was WONDERFUL! My whole, non-cultural family loved it, even my brother who hardly eats anything (besides mac & cheese and McDonald's) said it was awesome!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    vegetab ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1 1/2 cups ice water
    • 1 3/4 cups flour, sifted

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl place the egg yolks.
    2. 2
      Add iced water gradually, stirring (preferably with hashi(chopsticks)) and blending well.
    3. 3
      Add flour all at once, stir BRIEFLY; that is well enough to coat but leave the lumps and bumps!
    4. 4
      To fry vegetables heat a large frying pan with a half-inch oil (or more if necessary) and heat on high.
    5. 5
      Coat selected large vegetables in batter and fry for a minute or two on each side.

      WHERE'S THE FLAVOR? I mean this is just flour and eggs and water, I could have done that without looking it up. Frankly it worked but it was bland, tasteless and lacking imagination. I'm severely disappointed

      This was a very good recipe, and for some reason I think mixing it up with a chopstick makes a difference. Maybe since you have to stir harder to get the egg yolk to combine then it gets more air into it. The batter was light and crisp and not at all greasy.

      This is a good recipe, but not great. The family ate and loved the food. However, if you are seeking a crispy, light tempura batter similar to that found in Japanese restaurants, this is NOT it.
