Easy, Light and Crispy Tempura Batter

Having friends over to watch the game? Tempura is the perfect snack made with just three ingredients and your Bamix.

The ICC Cricket World Cup is nearly upon us, and we’re feeling inspired to whip up interesting, shareable snacks for when our friends pop in to watch the games. In honour of the gentleman’s game, we’re officially battering up!

Here’s how to use your bamix Swissline or bamix ToGo Blender to create the lightest, crunchiest tempura batter. Part of the secret to getting a crunchy batter is using ice cold water. We have used veggies in this recipe, but this crispy Japanese batter can be used for seafood too (we love a prawn tempura).

Hint: Tempura is best served hot with salt or a soy-based dipping sauce.


Bamix Tempura Recipe


  • 2 large eggs at room temperate, separated
  • 250 ml icy cold water
  • 3/4 cup (100 g) plain flour
  • Oil, for deep frying
  • Selection of thinly-sliced sweet potato and eggplant, mushroom caps, asparagus spears
  • Sea salt flakes



  • Add egg yolks and water to a mixing bowl.
  • Using your bamix with the “B” blade, blend on low speed until well combined.
  • Add the flour and blend again using the “C” blade.
  • Increase the speed and blend for 1 minute.
  • Remove the batter from the bowl and set aside.
  • Wash and dry the bowl.
  • Select the whisk attachment “A” blade
  • Add the egg whites to cylindrical container, add a little ”cream of Tartar” to your egg whites
  • Whisk on slow speed until whites form soft peaks.
  • Add the batter and whisk again, until batter is combined and smooth. Be careful not to over beat as you will lose all the volume.
  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan.
  • Coat the vegetable pieces lightly in the batter - draining off excess mixture.
  • Submerge the battered vegetables in the oil and cook for about 2 minutes, lightly tossing the vegetables in the hot oil until they turn a golden-brown colour.
  • Drain with slotted spoon and place on paper towel.
  • Repeat with the remaining vegetable and batter.
  • Season with salt and serve hot with a dipping sauce

Tempura is traditionally served with Tentsuyu, a dashi sauce laced with soy and mirin. Other dipping sauces that go well with tempura are: Sweet chilli sauce, sweet Indonesian soy and soy sauce
