Vegetables and Prawn Tempura

IJsselstein, Thursday, 2 January 2003 (updated: Friday, 10 January 2003)


For 4 serving
1/2 cauliflower
275 gram Broccoli
8 pieces Raw shelled prawns with tails intact
8 button Mushrooms
Vegetable oil, for deep frying
Lemon wedges and twigs of coriander
Soy sauce or sweet and chili sauce, to serve
For the paste:
115 grams Plain flour
2 separated Eggs
175 ml Cup iced water
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
pinch of salt


  1. Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into medium-size florets. Blanch all the florets for 1-2 minutes. Drain. Refresh under cold running water. Put to one side.
  2. To make the paste, place the flour and salt in a bowl, blend together the egg yolks and water and stir into the flour, beating well to make a smooth paste.
  3. Beat in the oil and then whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the paste. Wash and chop the coriander.
  4. Heat the oil to 190 degrees Celcius. Coat the vegetables and prawns in the paste. Fry until lightly golden brown and puffy. Let the oil drip off on kitchen paper and keep warm while frying the remaining tempura.
  5. Arrange the tempura on plates and garnish with lemon and coriander. Serve with soy sauce or sweet and chili sauce.

This is how I cook my fishball/squidball sauce: in a pan, i mix 1/2 cup brown sugar in 1 cup water, put a tablespoon of soysauce, 2 tablespoons of softdrink (yeah, coke, sprite or royal.. sarap talaga!), chopped garlic and onion (option of putting siling labuyo if i want it spicy), and a dash of black pepper. i let it boil, then i slowly add cornstarch (2-3 tablespoon, tinunaw sa super konting water) while stirring until i get the desired consistency. tapos taste ko. if kulang sa sugar, dagdagan. hehe. DO NOT PUT IN THE REFRIGERATOR kasi titigas yung sauce, pag ininit, buo-buo na.
