Sumida’s Watercress Tempura
Wednesday - August 12, 2009
This week we take a field trip to Sumida watercress farm in Aiea.
This show aired originally in July 2002.
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 water-cress
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 1-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.
