Tempura is a traditional Japanese dish where various fish and vegetables are deep fried in a deliciously light and crispy batter before being served with a dashi based soup for dipping.
Although originally introduced to Japan in the sixteenth century by Portuguese traders, Tempura quickly became a popular dish all over Japan, possibly influenced by the shogunate Tokugawa Ieyasu, who was particularly fond of this great food. Since then however, the methods of creating tempura has evolved into a highly precise process in order to create beautiful, fluffy and exquisitely prepared tempura.
