    ふかい なべに 75%ぐらい あぶらを いれます。In a heavy pan or skillet, Fill pan to about 75% capacity with oil.
  3. 160どから180どまで あぶらを あつく します。 てんぷらの ころもを すこし あぶらに いれて、ころもが すぐうえに きたら あげてもいいです。Heat oil to 160-180C . Check readiness of oil tempurature by dropping a bit of batter, if it floats to the top immedietly the oil is ready.
  4. はじめに やさいを あげます。 たくさん ころもを つけないでください。しいたけと ししとう(spicy green peppers)は なかだけ あげます。ほかの ものは ぜんぶ ころもを つけて あげます。 ごぼうは 3−5ほんいっしょに ころもを つけて、あげて ください。Fry harder vegtables first. Avoid using too much batter. Only fry the inner side of shitake and shiso. Fry all other items on both sides. Fry 3-5 strips of gobou together.
