March 07, 2018Reviewer: Merry in Utah* This stuff is nothing like tempura that you can get in Japanese restaurants.
I followed the instructions exactly, and also used an electric deep fryer to keep the oil temperature stable. The first batter seemed too thick, and, indeed, it was. The veggies turned out coated with a thick, tasteless, spongy outside, soaked in grease.
So I tried again, this time making the batter thinner, and I added some salt and onion powder to give it some flavor. Again, the result was not satisfactory. A lot of the coating fell off the veggies while frying, and what stayed on was still greasy.
I don't plan to buy this again.
