Add a delicious twist to the traditional tempura platter with this asparagus tempura recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (optional)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup seltzer, at room temperature
  • 1 pound asparagus

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard and honey.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat until the temperature registers at 375 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, sesame seeds, salt and baking soda. Whisk in the seltzer until smooth.
  4. Add the asparagus to the batter and turn to coat. Transferring one piece at a time, add about one-quarter of the asparagus to the hot oil and cook, turning, until golden and crisp, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining asparagus, allowing the oil to return to 374 degrees between batches. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
