Basic Tempura Batter

There are few things more delicious than tempura. Whether you are making vegetable tempura with lovely courgettes from your garden or a seafood tempura, the flavors can be truly sublime. This is my recipe for basic tempura batter.

  • 5oz plain flour
  • 5oz corn flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 13fl oz Japanese beer
  • Sieve the flours together into a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the beer and beaten eggs.
  • Whisk until roughly combined and let the batter rest for half an hour.
