To schmoot: Tempura is meant to be eaten with a dipping sauce or with noodles and broth. There's your flavor.
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.
My five year old help to make the batter while I did the veggies which turned out well. Good recipe that the kids can help with...and nothing like tempura to have kids eating vegetables they normally don't like to eat!
very easy!! great base batter...able to add whatever you want. I mixed in stand mixer and still turned out good. Next time will add some of our favorite seasonings.
My first time making a tempura batter, this recipre was easy to make. I used the handle of my wooden spoon to mix the ingredients as we don't have chopsticks and that worked well. I also used a rice bran oil for frying. This was good as you can get it very hot. One thing I didn't think of was draining the oil off each piece. I piled them on top of each other which left those pieces at the bottom soggy. So next time I will be using a different method.
Great tempura batter. So easy to make. Very crisp.
soft coating -- not at all crisp as tempura should be...
