Mixed Mushroom Tempura

Mixed Mushroom Tempura

There's something irresistible about the crispy crunch of tempura. As simple as it is, if made well, it can really open a meal or accompany a meal beautifully. Why not also tempura some edible flowers for a touch of "good looking' and a dash of colour.
