Whisk homemade tempura ingredients together and set aside:
- 2 well-beaten egg yolks
- 1 1/2 cups ice-cold water
- 1 3/4 cup sifted flour
- 1 teaspoon sifted baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Sweet onion love. You can use tempura with all kinds of veggies if it makes you feel better about the deep frying.
Slice a large sweet onion into rings and separate.
Preheat oil and then maintain between 360 – 370 degrees F. If you don’t have a fryer, you can use a heavy pot and cooking thermometer.
Dip onion slices in batter one at a time.
Carefully place each coated onion slice into oil, making sure to only place one layer of onion rings at a time so they don’t stick together.
Cook until golden. Line a baking sheet with a couple of layers of paper towels. Place onion rings on paper towels to drain excess oil. Salt right away. Smile.
