I like to make this as a little intro dish for a dinner party. My friend Misha showed me how to tempura tomatoes years ago, and it’s a real fine line between having too much batter and it slipping off and having not enough. The right batter consistency will coat the tomato just long enough to get it into the oil. And be super careful when frying the tomatoes – if the batter slips off, the moisture from the tomatoes will make the oil splatter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
oil, for deep-frying
1 fuji apple or other sweet red apple, cut into matchsticks
250g green cabbage, shredded
60ml olive oil
60ml apple cider vinegar
pinch poppy seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
freshly ground black pepper
lemon juice, to taste
35g self-raising flour
80ml soda water
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
240g cherry tomatoes, on the vine
1 teaspoon hot paprika

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or heavy-based saucepan to 170–180°C, or until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns golden brown in 15–20 seconds.
  2. In a bowl, combine the apple, cabbage, olive oil, vinegar, poppy seeds and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Add the black pepper and lemon juice to taste and mix well.
  3. To make the fried tomatoes, combine the flour, soda water, cayenne pepper and mustard powder in a bowl. Whisk until smooth. Carefully put the cherry tomatoes into the mixture and spoon over the batter until well coated. Drain off the excess batter ever so slightly then fry the tomatoes for around 45–60 seconds, or until crisp and golden. Remove the tomatoes and drain them on a wire rack.
  4. Lightly dust the tomatoes with the hot paprika and remaining salt, and serve with the apple slaw.
