How to cook Cauliflower Tempura

Cauliflower Tempura Recipe is a fun way of eating your veggies. This Japanese inspired veggie snack is very easy to make at the comfort of your own home, though, you have to be careful in making the batter since it can be chewy when you over mix it. To perfect this recipe, the cauliflower and the batter should be cold and the oil temperature must not be too high or too low. When it’s cooked you have to serve it immediately since it is best when it’s still hot and crunchy.

This recipe can also be prepared with any other vegetables according to your preference, such as broccoli, cucumber, carrots and even seafood like squid and prawns.  We also have a number of Tempura recipes that you can try out; Pork Belly Tempura, Prawn Tempura, Veggie Tempura, Bangus Belly Tempura and Broccoli Tempura.
