Step 1

Make the dipping sauce by mixing the dashi, mirin and soy sauce together in a small pot.

Step 2

Mix the tempura with water according to the packet instructions.

Step 3

Drop the vegetables into the batter.

Step 4

Heat enough oil for deep-frying in a wok until it reaches about 180-190 degrees (when a cube of bread fries in 30 seconds).

Step 5

Lift 2-3 pieces of the vegetables out of the batter, add to the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes until the batter is a light golden colour.

Step 6

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Keep hot whilst you cook the rest.

Step 7

Transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl with the dipping sauce on the side, and enjoy!
