Peel and devein the shrimps. Make a few slits in the underside of the shrimps and straighten these out. Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. Leaving about 1 cm (0.4 in.) from the stem, make lengthwise slits across the width of each piece (doing so will create fan-shaped eggplant pieces after deep-frying). Slice the carrot and onion into 5 mm (0.2 in.) thick rounds. Cut the green pepper in half lengthwise, remove the stem and seeds.
Place (A) into a pot and bring this mixture to a boil.
Place the beaten egg in a bowl, add in the cold water and mix well with a fork until uniform. Sift in the flour and mix all ingredients together with a fork in a manner as if drawing the number ‘8’. Avoid over-mixing and stop mixing once only a slight powderiness remains.
Heat the deep-frying oil to 180℃ (356F), coat the ingredients from (1) in (3) and deep-fry each to crispy for 2 - 3 minutes. Scoop the warm rice into bowls, top with the tempura and pour on (2).
When deep-frying shrimp or prawns, quite often the tail is left and only the shell is removed. Peel the shell off from the head while making sure that the last abdominal segment to which the tail is attached remains intact. When the shell is peeled off, the legs will also be removed.
Shrimp or prawns have a dark-colored intestinal tract (often called a vein) running down the length of their back, this needs to be removed. For shrimps in shells, before removing the shell, place a toothpick into the 2nd to 3rd abdominal segment from the head and gently remove this. By slightly bending the back this process is made easier. For headless shrimp, quite often the intestinal tract has been removed with the head.
