How To Make Tempura At Home

Takahiro Sakaeda of Nami Nori in NYC demonstrates how to make tempura, a beloved Japanese dish by way of Portugal. Takahiro starts by making two dipping sauces, a traditional tentsuyu dip and a yuzu flavored soy sauce. Next, he prepares a variety of veggies and seafood, like sweet potato, corn, eggplant, squid, and much more. Finally, he fries each piece in a light batter, resulting in crispy, dippable bites. Check out the recipe here:

  • so the batter is just AP flour and ice water? he says they have a premixed one, but doesn't say what's in it aside from using wheat flour and ice water

  • I wish he did scallops. They’re so difficult to batter and fry.

    Ms x Murda 16/10/2022 pm2:42
  • What type of oil is he using.? How does he finish the sauce he adds Yuzu to? I'm guessing the temporal sauce..
