Make this batter and then use it immediately -- you'll want to have your cooking oil hot and ready to go, as well as have prepped all the items to be fried.



  1. Mix the egg yolks and seltzer together with a whisk or a pair of chopsticks until smooth. Drop the flour in all at once, then mix, stopping when there are still small lumps in the batter. Stir in the ice cubes.
  2. Dip your chosen tempura ingredients in the batter, and fry until crispy and pale gold in color.
