Tempura batter mix is a special low-gluten flour mixture for crispy and golden brown tempura without fail.
Tempura batter mix (天ぷら粉) is a convenient flour mixture for making tempura. It contains cake flour, starch, baking powder, egg powder, and an emulsifier.
While you can make the batter from scratch, getting the right water temperature and lumpiness can be a challenge. This mix is a fool-proof method for crispy and crunchy tempura.
If you like to make the batter from scratch, refer to my recipes on Shrimp Tempura or Vegetable Tempura.
