How to make it

  • Instuctions
  • Get everything together before you start cooking the batch
  • The only exception to this would be to test-fry one piece of squash, since it cooks quickly and you can test the flavor and consistency of your batter
  • Once you are happy with the batter, start with the lemons, since they are bombproof
  • Dust the lemon slices in the cornstarch and fry until crispy. There is a very fine line between ‘dark’ lemon flesh and very bitter lemon flesh, so watch carefully.
  • When you put the lemon slices on a paper towel to dry, and while they are still hot, sprinkle with sugar and set aside
  • With everything else except the basil leaves and carrot tops, dredge in the cornstarch, dip in the batter, and fry until lightly cooked
  • Set aside on paper towels until everything is complete
  • For the basil leaves, just carefully swing one side of the leaf through your beery tempura and fry for 30 seconds, or until batter is cooked
  • For the carrot greens, drop in the fryer and cook until crispy. Remove, salt and use for an edible garnish
  • For the Batter
  • Combine your dry ingredients and add the egg
  • When egg is thoroughly mixed in, add the beer until you have a runny tempura-consistency batter
  • Set aside until ready to use
