Broccoli tempura with chilli, coriander and soy dip


For the tempura
For the dipping sauce

Preparation method

  1. For the tempura, whisk the plain flour, cornflour and fizzy water to make a batter the consistency of single cream, adding the water little by little as necessary.

  2. Heat the oil in a deep heavy-based frying pan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped into it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)

  3. Dip the broccoli florets into the batter. Deep-fry the florets in the oil for 5-6 minutes until golden-brown and crisp, then remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  4. For the dipping sauce, blend all the dipping sauce ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

  5. To serve, place the tempura broccoli onto a serving plate with a separate bowl of the dipping sauce on the side.
