tentsuyu -

Tentsuyu ( ?) Is a tempura dye sauce from Japan.

The recipe for making tentsuyu depends on the current season and the ingredients prepared. In general, tentsuyu consists of three parts dashi, one part mirin, and one part of soy sauce. But for ingredients with strong odors or flavors, sake and sugar can be used instead of mirin, or soy sauce may also be used.

Similar ingredients can be used to make boiling sauce for donburi and broth for cooking such as agedashi tofu (tofu fried in broth) and buckwheat (soba noodle).

Tentsuyu in concentrated form is generally sold in small bottles in supermarkets and grocery stores throughout Japan, as well as in Asian grocery stores in the United States.

When eaten with tempura, these tentsuyu are usually served with grated white radish daikon.
