Tentsuyu – Japanese Tempura Dip

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Tentsuyu  (てんつゆ/天汁)  is Japanese tempura dip.

The recipe for tentsuyu depends on the seasons and on the ingredients for which tentsuyu is being prepared. A general, all-purpose, tentsuyu might consist of three parts dashi, one part mirin, and one part soy sauce. For ingredients with strong odours or flavours, however, sake and sugar might be used instead of mirin, or more or less shoyu might be used.

Similar ingredients make up the simmering sauce for Donburi and the broth for dishes like agedashi tofu (deep-fried tofu in broth) and soba (buckwheat noodles).

Tentsuyu in concentrated form is commonly sold in a small bottles in supermarkets and grocery stores throughout Japan — It can be found in Asian grocery stores in Australia.

When used for tempura, tentsuyu is commonly served with grated daikon white radish.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dashi
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup mirin
  • 225 g daikon radish, peeled thickly (So you can see the radish's translucent flesh)
  • 1 cm piece fresh ginger, peeled (about 30 g)

Instructions

  • Combine the dashi, soy sauce, and mirin in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat. As soon as the dipping sauce comes to a boil, turn off the heat. When you're ready to serve, reheat over low heat.

  • When you're ready to eat, add the daikon and ginger to the dipping sauce and dip the tempura into it.
