How to Make It

To make the tempura: Slice vegetables into thin or small pieces (about an inch or so) and combine batter ingredients until well incorporated.

Pour about 1 inch of oil on the bottom of a frying pan or wok and bring up to medium heat. Once oil is hot but not smoking, dip the vegetables in the batter, making sure they are well coated. Fry them until they are lightly brown, a few at a time, and do not crowd the pan. When they've cooked, place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

To make the dipping sauce: Combine all ingredients and stir until incorporated. Serve with tempura.
