Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, pour in enough vegetable oil to fill the pan about 1/3 of the way. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer, inserted in the oil, reaches 375 degrees F. (If you dont have a thermometer a cube of bread will brown in about 2 minutes.)

  • While the oil is heating, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the club soda and sesame oil. Stir until just combined and still lumpy.

  • Dip the vegetables in the batter and fry, 3 or 4 at a time, until the batter is golden and crispy, about 60 to 70 seconds. Drain on paper towels.

  • Arrange the vegetables on a platter and serve the soy sauce alongside as a dipping sauce.
