Ingredients for the kakiage (enough for 4):
- 1 large onion, finely sliced
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 handful of frozen vegetables
The batter recipe is followed as the link, while the tempura dipping sauce was slowly warmed on the stove. I unfortunately don't have dashi (kombu nor bonito), so the dipping sauce isn't very authentic. But still edible and not too bad.
These vegetables are mixed with the batter and spoonfuls are dropped into the hot oil.
I also fried eggplant, the sliced fish and french beans seperately. But these would cook more slowly than the kakiage mix, so I'd advise the kakiage mix is cooked last.
All in all, despite the unauthentic dipping sauce, the SO pronounces the dinner a raging success and I have his permission to make it again. (^_^)
Edit: Look, 0x0000ff! We finally got to use the deep fryer! Thank you!
