Keep the leftover Panko in the freezer and reuse it some other day."
Nonetheless, one day I discovered that to make a wonderfully light and crunchy tempura I do not need Panko at all, do I?
Just get 200 ml of sparkling super cold water (put in the fridge for about one hour), 100 gr of superfine flour and one egg yolk. Mix in this order: yolk, water and flour without blending too much. Put the compound in the fridge until it's time to use it. Sunflower oil must be hot!
Pour the ingredients (those your kids prefer) in the compound and immediately after in the hot oil. You'll taste a great tempura :)
Any suggestions to make it even better, Kyoko?!?
