I cheated a little with the tempura and used a premade tempura batter packet, but it made things a lot easier, you simply mix the powder with ice cold (make sure it's very cold!) water and be sure not to over mix.
With the vegetables, you want to choose various types with different textures and cut them into medium sized chunks. I used: Onion, Capsicum, Broccoli, Carrot, Eggplant and Green Beans
You simply dip your chopped vegetables into the tempura batter and deep fry for a few minutes until crispy. I served mine with a tempura dipping sauce which was delicious.
Tonkatsu Curry Rice
Tonkatsu (or pork cutlet) is a breaded and deep fried pork which is often served on curry rice in Japan. It is a super delicious dish that I promise you will love, and it is super easy to make!
Salt and Pepper
Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1. Season pork with salt and pepper on both sides
2. Place flour in plate and coat pork with flour on both sides
3. Coat pork in beaten egg
4. Coat pork in panko
5. Fry with plenty of oil until cooked
6. Serve with tonkatsu sauce
For the Curry I use S&B golden curry cubes

After dinner we walked down the road to the driving range and hit a 'bucket of balls' together.
