Tempura is a dish where ingredients, such as seafood and vegetables, are dipped into a batter of flour, egg, and water, then fried in oil.


You can then dip it into a special tempura sauce or salt before eating. Tempura is often eaten alongside udon and soba. It is a classic staple on Japanese-style restaurants’ menus. It is also easily found in the side-dish area of supermarkets.
