Japanese Food Tips
March 20, 2017
Sushi, sukiyaki and tempura are famous Japanese foods. Perhaps many people must be familiar with them. This time, the topic is tempura. I think that there are many people who have eaten tempura or know of it. To describe it, it is foodstuffs which have been dipped in a coating of water, wheat flour, and beaten egg and then fried oil. Seafood can include shrimp, squid, kisu (Japanese whiting), anago (Japanese conger), etc. Vegetables can include eggplant, potato, green pepper, squash, mushrooms, etc. Recently, chicken and pork are also used for tempura. Tempura is difficult to cook because the temperature and timing is very important. That is why tempura cooked by a skilled chef is always extra good and delicious. Of course, many people enjoy tempura cooked at home or bought at supermarkets and department stores. We have also posted some tempura recipes on our website. They introduce step by step procedures with accompanying photos. Please try them and enjoy the freshness of home cooked tempura.
