Simple Crispy Tempura Batter

Simple Crispy Tempura Batter

This is super easy and I've been told that even when chilled, it is still crispy!

Ingredients: 2 generous servings

☆Cake flour
100 g
☆Baking powder
5 g
1 tablespoon
1/2 tablespoon
★Cold water
150 ~ 170 g
0 ~ 3 cubes


1. Add all the ☆ ingredients to a bowl and mix in a circular motion with cooking chopsticks. Put it in the fridge. Weigh out the ★ ingredients and once mixed, put it in the fridge too. Chop up the tempura ingredients and put them in the fridge.
2. While the oil is heating up, combine the ☆ ingredients with the ★ ingredients and gently mix it. It's okay if it has lumps. Coat the ingredients and fry them.
3. The top picture is of a kakiage rice bowl. Put three ice cubes in with the batter to chill it even more.
