“These are very yummy, and if any of you have ever had Japanese tempura coated veggies, you'll love this recipe. It's similar, yet it is unique in it's taste. Serve with a chili sauce, mint yogurt sauce, or sweet and sour sauce. Try other vegetables for dipping, such as sweet potatoes, broccoli and asparagus.” - by veggigoddess

I use whatever veg I have on hand (try carrots, spinach, broccoli, mushrooms), dice them small, and add the whole lot to the batter and stir. Then drop by tablespoons into the hot oil. Don't worry, they will form together into patties when they cook (or if they fall apart a little, they're so tasty no one will mind!), cook until they seem just a little overdone to make them good and crispy. They're not bad the second day, if they last, just a bit soggy. Reheat in the oven."
"Yum! I took another user's advice and diced the vegetables and just mixed them with the batter. I fried them in about 1/2 inch of oil to prevent them from falling apart. The vegetables I used were spi..." See morenach, potato, carrot, cauliflower, and onion. Thanks so much for sharing!"
"These were a big hit! The batter has a wonderful flavour, and they stay crunchy for a few hours. I'm not sure how well they keep past then, because they didn't last long enough to find out. I added br..." See moreoccoli, red pepper, grated carrot and zucchini to the cauliflower and onion, and the added vegetables worked wonderfully with the batter. They're best if allowed to cook until quite brown, almost overdone looking, and served fresh."
