Start with the tempura batter by mixing your flour, baking powder, bicarb, and a pinch of salt and pepper together. Add the sparkling water slowly while whisking. Cover and set aside.

For the soya dip, heat a frying pan to a medium heat and sweat the onions. While the onions are sweating, cut the tips off on both sides of the green beans and give them a good wash and set aside. Once the onions have finished sweating, add the curry powder and fry for a further minute while stirring. Add the soya sauce, allow to simmer for 2 minutes and set aside.

Place the green beans in the batter and deep fry at 140°C (high heat).

Serve immediately.

When you are serving anything that is in a tempura batter, try serve as soon as it comes out the fryer to maintain the crunch and freshness.
Always remember to place any fried ingredients on paper towel straight after frying to remove all the excess oil.
