Tempura vegetables with dipping sauce


For the tempura
For the dipping sauce

Preparation method

  1. Heat the oil in a deep, heavy-bottomed pan. The oil is ready when a breadcrumb dropped into it will sizzle gently. (CAUTION: Hot oil can be very dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)

  2. Place the flour and the sparkling water into a large bowl and whisk until a smooth batter is formed.

  3. Dip the mangetout, carrots and sweetcorn into the batter and carefully place into the oil and deep-fry for two minutes, or until crisp and golden. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels.

  4. Meanwhile, for the sauce, place all the ingredients, except the ginger, into a small saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to simmer for three minutes.

  5. Place into a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir through the ginger.

  6. To serve, place the tempura vegetables into a bowl and serve the sauce alongside.
