This is one of the easiest things you can make. Tempura batter is the opposite of a normal batter in that you mix it at the last minute and you deliberately make it lumpy! Although this sounds a little strange, if you don’t make it like that, it won’t work properly. Don’t be tempted to use a whisk, as that’ll do too good a job. In Japan, tempura chefs use chopsticks to mix their batter, to make sure it doesn’t end up too smooth.
