The Anatomy of Tempura #JLMtabemono ?❤️ Tempura is a very popular Japanese food which is basically a piece of seafood or vegetable dipped in light batter then deep fried in hot oil. Here are some bits of trivia about everyone’s favorite deep fried Japanese food: 1. The Portuguese brought it to Japan in the 16th century. 2. “Tempura” came from the word “tempora” or time, which is related to the temporary time in the Catholic calendar called the Lenten season in which only seafood and veggies are to be eaten. 3. Sesame oil is traditionally used for deep frying because it is said to make the coating more crispy. 4. Tenkasu, the floating bits of cooked batter when deep frying are scooped up, drained, and saved to use for toppings in other dishes like takoyaki, okonomiyaki, and fried rice. ❤️ Do you love tempura too?
