With chopsticks slide the mixture into the oil.

You can use either dipping sauce or salt. To make the dipping sauce, mix bonito soup stock, soy sauce and sugar together in a pan and bring to a boil. Pour into two small bowls. Dip the shrimps into the dipping sauce. Or, if you prefer salt, pour a suitable amount onto a small plate and dip the shrimps into the salt.
Kakiage tempura can use a combination of sliced vegetables, shrimps or scallops. However, this dish uses only vegetables. It has a rich taste.
