How to make it

  • First, prepare the oysters or mussels. Rinse and remove mussels from shells (if using), or drain the oysters. Place next to the stove.
  • Prepare the vegetables and also place them next to the stove.
  • Now prepare the tempura batter.
  • Stir the flours, baking powder, and sugar together. Then add the water, eggs, and fish sauce. Stir until smooth. (If necessary, use a whisk to get rid of any lumps.)
  • Heat oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Oil is usually ready to use when bubbles begin to rise from the bottom of the pan.To make sure oil is hot enough, dip your spoon in the batter and drop a little into the oil. If the batter sizzles and cooks, the oil is ready.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, you can turn the heat down to medium. Don't overheat the oil. Now ladle some of the tempura batter into the oil. You can make your tempura "pankcakes" as large or small as you like, depending on how much batter you use at one time.
  • Immediately, while your first tempura pancake cooks, drop a few oysters (or mussel meat) into it. Also sprinkle on some of the vegetables - bean sprouts, red pepper, green onion, plus chili and tomato (if using). Try to spread these ingredients out over the surface of the pancake.
  • Allow to fry 30 seconds or so. When the pancake begins to look crusty around the outside, it's time to flip it. Using a spatula, turn the tempura pancake over in the oil to cook the other side. Do this carefully so the oil doesn't splatter. (The ingredients you just added will stay in the pancake.)
  • The pancake is done when both sides are light golden brown. Remove pancake from the oil and leave to drain on an absorbant kitchen towel or paper towel.
  • Repeat until all the batter and other ingredients are used up.
  • Place the pancakes on a plate (on a bed of lettuce, if you want to make this dish look extra special). Sprinkle fresh coriander over, and serve while hot with Thai sweet chilli sauce, or regular chilli sauce. Enjoy!!
  • Thai chilli can be find in Asia market....Enjoy
  • This dish also can be mix in together with batter before fry. very little oil....
