The popping texture of the mozuku is irresistible.To make this a macrobiotic dish, I left the egg out of the tempura dredging, but feel free to use store-bought tempura batter or mix an egg into the batter.
Mozuku contains 'fucoidan,' a substance said to be effective against pollen allergies. I read this information in an introduction to mozuku tempura, so decided to try it since I have it.
I used carrots for color, but please feel free to use whatever vegetables you like.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
