Ingredients

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup club soda, chilled
  • Peanut oil, for frying  
  • 2 large carrots, sliced into small sticks
  • 1 Idaho potato, sliced into small sticks
  • 1 onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Wasabi Garlic Mayonnaise, for dipping

Tempura may be the distant relative of the french fry. The Japanese have long enjoyed the crispy, crunchy taste of fresh vegetables coated with a fluffy batter.

Directions

In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Add the egg yolk and club soda last. Whisk to form a smooth batter.

Preheat the peanut oil to 375 degrees in a heavy pot or deep fryer.

Dip the vegetables in the batter, shaking off excess. Then fry in small batches for about 2-3 minutes until puffy, golden, and cooked through. Drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve the tempura with Wasabi Garlic Mayonnaise for dipping.
