Did you know this food was brought to Japan by the Portuguese Jesuit missionaries in the 16th century?

The tempura batter is prepared with wheat flour, water, and eggs. Then, slices of veggies or seafood are dipped in it and deep-fried in vegetable oil. The temperature of the batter is usually ice cold and the oil is very hot for deep-frying so that every piece is perfectly crispily fried.
