The Japanese have achieved perfection in making temperature, quickly surpassing the Europeans. It does not require sophisticated ingredients to make it. These are mostly pieces of vegetables, seafood, fish or meat. Each bite is rolled in a characteristic thin dough. It is the secret of temperature. After frying it should be light and crispy, necessarily warm, preferably hot. Therefore, the temperature is given immediately after preparation.
In Japan there is a whole chain of restaurants where the temperature is served. Some of them also serve sushi at a tempura. This is a dish for people who appreciate sushi, but want to eat something warm. Both the usual temperature and sushi in tempura can be done at home.

During preparation, mix the ingredients quickly - half a glass of wheat and corn flour with the addition of water. One egg and a pinch of salt are also added. The dough should not be stirred thoroughly. If lumps remain, they will disappear during the quick frying process. They are prepared at the last minute. Add ice water or ice cubes to the dough. This treatment guarantees additional crunchiness.
