This fantastic batter recipe does it all --- no soda water, no beer -- just they way it is. Make vegetable tempura, prawn tempura, mushroom lollipops, and the best crispy deep-fried onion rings ever. The batter results in a beautifully light golden crispy coating, that maintains its crisp for longer than other batter types.
