Veg Tempura

By Food E Fare

Tempura is a Japanese dish that involves batter-frying various ingredients, and vegetable tempura specifically features vegetables as the main component. The vegetables are coated in a light, crispy batter and deep-fried until golden brown. The result is a delicious and crunchy exterior that contrasts with the tender, cooked vegetables inside. Here's a basic recipe for making vegetable tempura:


  • Assorted vegetables (common choices include sweet potatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, and green beans)
  • Tempura batter mix (readily available in stores) or make your own batter using flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and cold water
  • Ice-cold water (to keep the batter cold)
  • Vegetable oil (for deep-frying)


  1. Prepare the vegetables by cutting them into bite-sized pieces or thin strips, depending on the type of vegetable.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the tempura batter mix or make your own batter by whisking together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and ice-cold water. Follow the instructions on the tempura batter mix package or use a simple homemade recipe.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, deep pan to around 350-375°F (175-190°C).
  4. Dip the vegetable pieces into the tempura batter, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  5. Carefully place the coated vegetables into the hot oil, frying a few pieces at a time to prevent overcrowding. Fry until the batter becomes golden brown and crispy.
  6. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the vegetable tempura from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining vegetables.
  8. Serve the vegetable tempura immediately, either on its own or with a dipping sauce like tentsuyu (a mixture of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin) or tempura dipping sauce.
