Japanese tempura

Tempuras are an assortment of fritters, both very tasty and digestible, extremely popular in Japan. Tempura owes its origin to the Portuguese who landed on the Japanese coast in the sixteenth century and used to cook food in batter during their religious fast. The Japanese were inspired by this method of cooking to create a tempura using a recipe finer than the original dish. Tempura with light frying thanks to its fluid batter allows the staple food to retain all its flavour and colour. A very large amount of ingredients can be used to make tempura that can also be served as a dessert.
