A simple and versatile flour mix for making some brilliant batters.

In Japanese cuisine, there's so many things to try out frying in tempura batter it's helpful to have a practical yet authentic tempura flour like this at the ready. Pre-mixed with egg, all this flour needs is a gentle whisk or stir with water to create a small and somewhat lumpy mixture that is perfect for a light and crunchy coating when fried. Using iced or sparkling water, you can keep the batter at a healthy thinness, with the flour carrying all the flavour needed to add that much-loved Japanese touch to your favourite ingredients. As an all-round mixture, this flour makes for a handy cooking staple, able to form the base for okonomiyaki pancakes, other fried foods and even cake baking, with a helpful dose of baking powder included.
