Fennel & Aubergine Tempura

Goes well with a nice cold drink.

Recipe By: M Kushima (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/212)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Fennel (small) 1/2
Aubergine 1
Carrot 1/2
Potato starch as required
Tempura flour as required
Dipping sauce:
Noodle stock (mentsuyu) 3-4 tbsp
Pickled plum (umeboshi) 1
Sesame seeds as required
Lime zest as required

Method

1
Cut the fennel, aubergine and carrots into fine strips.
2
Just before they're ready to fry, dredge with potato starch and mix together. Run through the tempura batter (tempura flour and water) and deep fry 2-3 minutes in 180C hot oil.
3
Mix all the dipping sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
4
Transfer the tempura to a serving dish. Pour the dipping sauce from Step 3 into a small dish and serve alongside. Eat whilst hot!

Tips & Note

●Dredging in potato starch makes the batter stick to the vegetables and clumps them all together nicely, so this is an important step.
