This week we tour Sumida’s watercress farm and share Grandma Sumida’s watercress recipe.
GRANDMA SUMIDA’S WATERCRESS TEMPURA
* 1 egg
* 1/2 cup less 1 tablespoon cornstarch
* 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 bunch Sumida watercress
Beat egg thoroughly with a fork. Pour egg into a measuring cup and add enough water to measure a total of three quarters of a cup. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix well. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and mix well by folding. Do not beat; the little lumps do not matter.
For best results, chill the batter in the refrigerator for at least one hour before using. Wash watercress, drain and cut into one-inch pieces. Put watercress into batter and mix well. Drop the mixture by tablespoons and fry in very hot, deep oil until golden brown and crunchy.
Makes five servings.
