Fried Vegetable Tempura Appetizer Recipe
You can use vegetable tempura with soy-based dipping sauce. To make dipping sauce, combine 1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice, and mirin and 1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) sambal oelek. Stir well.
- For Batter:
- 3/4 cup cornstarch, divided
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (180 ml) cold soda water
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) sesame oil
- vegetables for frying
In a large mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup (125 ml) cornstarch, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well.
Pour in the soda water and sesame oil. Mix just until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for1 hour.
Add oil in a Dutch oven to a depth of about 2 inches (5 cm) heat over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 350ºF (175º C).
Spread the remaining cornstarch on a small plate. Dredge vegetable in it, then dip in the batter.
Working in batches, add to hot oil and fry until crisp and golden, for about 1 minute per side.
Remove fried vegetables from the fryer and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Sprinkle with salt.
