Recipe : tempura batter Jean-Francois Trap
At the market
150 g rice flour, 60 g cornstarch, 80 g white wine, 150 g beer
In the kitchen
Sift the rice flour and cornstarch well. Pour them into a salad bowl. Book.
Pour the white wine and beer into a bowl. Mix them.
Pour gradually while whisking the preparation based on white wine and beer on the one based on rice flour and cornstarch. By depositing the liquid material on the solid material, you will thus avoid the risk of having lumps. Whisk until smooth.
See you next week to use the tempura batter to make zucchini and eggplant fritters.
