Your Home for Homemade Japanese Food

How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Eggplant Tempura (Vegetarian)


I am sure many people think Japanese food = Tempura and Sushi.

Today I will teach you how to make Tempura with eggplant.

Once you see this recipe, you can make any kind of Tempura, such as shrimp, squid, fish and many kinds of vegetables, whatever you want.

I chose eggplant this time because it is my favorite Tempura. I like the juicy texture, light sweet taste and  low calories!! Eggplant also has polyphenol which works as an antioxident. So it is a good food to eat to help you stay healthy.

Japanese don’t eat Tempura so often because it is deep-fried, and not very healthy if we eat it every day.

{Ingredients (for 2 people)}

・½ American Eggplant

・1 cup Flour

・1 Egg

・1 cup Cold Water

・10 Ice Cubes

・3 ½ cups Vegetable Oil
