These crispy little morsels are so delicious, that it is quite a task not snacking on already cooked ones while waiting for another batch to cook. They are a yummy accompaniment to any meal; as a meal on their own and make for an unusual starter for dinner guests paired with a choice of different dipping sauces. These are great (albeit not the healthiest option) to coax little ones who are not so keen on eating their veggies.
1 extra large egg
190ml ice water
125ml cake flour
5ml baking powder
Your choice of thinly sliced veggies
e.g. brinjal, onions, asparagus, mushrooms, yellow/red peppers, marrow, potato
- Whisk the egg and iced water together.
- Add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, sugar and salt and stir until combined. The batter should look lumpy.
- Dip your veggies into the batter and fry a few at a time in oil until golden brown.
Drain on brown paper.

I love tempura!
I know my girls would love tempura vegetables, I will have to give this a try this year! Hope you have a great labor day weekend!
I’ve never met a fried veggie that I don’t like…
We love tempura, but have never made it at home. Thanks for the inspiration, Mandy! 🙂
I do hope you enjoy making them as much as I do – they really are very easy and seriously yummy 🙂
