<i>Ten-Don</i> (<i>Tempura</i> Bowl)
  When making Tempura for Ten-Don, the batter should be thicker than your regular Tempura recipe. The thicker batter will soak in the salty/sweet sauce and you will enjoy a mouthful of flavor at each bite.

Ingredients (serves 4):
To Cook in the Rice Cooker:

  • 2 cups (rice measuring cup) short or medium grain white rice
  • Water to fill to water level 2 for white rice

To Prepare Separately:

  • 4 servings Tempura (see recipe), battered with 2 Tbsp. extra flour


  • 6 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar

Measure the rice accurately and place in the inner cooking pan. Rinse rice under water until water clears.


Add water by filling up to the water scale marked “2” for “White Rice”. Cook the rice using the “Regular” setting.



Make Tempura in a thicker batter by adding an extra 2 Tbsp. of flour to the batter and keep warm. 


In a small saucepan, put soy sauce, mirin, sugar and bring to a simmer over medium heat.


When rice completes cooking, fill each serving bowl with rice and top with Tempura. Drizzle the prepared sauce and serve immediately.
