Step:

  1. In a pot or deep fryer, heat oil to 375°F.

  2. Try to maintain this temperature throughout cooking to keep the fried beans light and crispy.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together cornstarch, flour, baking powder, salt, sparkling water, oil and, if desired chile flakes.

  4. Sprinkle more cornstarch on a plate.

  5. Lightly coat each green bean in cornstarch and shake off excess.

  6. Dip into batter and slide into hot oil, letting cook 3 to 4 minutes until crisp and golden brown.

  7. Let drain on a paper towel covered plate.

  8. *Zucchini, mushrooms and pea pods can also be used.*

  9. **Tempura is best eaten freshly made and warm, but if stored over night in the fridge, a quick blast under the broiler on a baking sheet can reheat the beans while maintaining some crunch.**
