Spread the love

Vegetable tempura is one way to dupe kids into eating vegetables. However, this recipe will take a lot of patience to make.

It’s every parents’ dream of seeing their kids munching radish or enjoying carrots. It’s like a fairytale come true witnessing kids munching of vegetables instead of junk foods.

However, 80% of kids didn’t like them.

Kids hate vegetables due to their taste buds. They have 300% more taste buds than adults. Therefore, they can taste bitterness stronger than adults do. Since they were infants, they are used to milk and will keep on looking for the sweet and creamy.

Instead of spoiling the meal by bargaining and forcing them to eat vegetables, why not trick them? You can dupe them into thinking that they were eating potato chips when in fact they were eating a radish.

Vegetable Tempura is one way. My recipe is composed of radish, carrots, bell pepper, green chilies, water spinach leaves and many more.

Vegetable Tempura 2


  • 1 pack chicken breading (Recommended – Crispy Fry)
  • 1 cup flour
  • Whole carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 whole radish, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, seeds removed and chopped
  • 2 green chilies, seeds removed, wash the inside and chopped
  • 1 bundle water spinach, separate the leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 spoon Water
  • Cooking Oil


  1. Make a batter first. Combine 5 spoon water to 2 spoon flour and mix well.
  2. Add salt, pepper, and mix until smooth. Then, set aside.
  3. Combine the batter to the vegetables and make sure that all are covered.
  4. In a bowl, combine the chicken breading and remaining flour (flour mixture).
  5. Use a basin with cover. Spread some flour mixture to the empty basin.
  6. Spread all the vegetables.
  7. Cover the vegetables with the remaining flour mixture.
  8. Cover the basin and shake like crazy.
  9. Put the basin with vegetables into the freezer.
  10. Separate the vegetables as some are intact with each other.
  11. Deep fry until golden brown.
  12. Serve enjoy.

Note: Cold breading will react to oil, which results in a crispier treat.
