I used this batter as a template for vegetable tempura. Fantastic! The batter was perfect, only thing I added was cayenne pepper to the mix. I will definitely get around to doing an avocado tempura. Works great for sweet potato, broccoli, and squash.
Love. Love. Love. Love. Didn't change a thing on a recipe. Love it! Did I mention I love this dish? Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. Yum!
Can't wait to try this, had deep fried avocado at a Avocado festival a few years back. Thought it sounded strange but was so good. Have been wanting to try them at home ever since, thanks for the recipe and reminding me of this treat.
The family liked these. But they thought that they needed salt. So I would salt the avocados before battering. I also thought that they could have used a little heat. Maybe some Tabasco sauce in the batter. Served with ranch, and jalapenos :)
While I'm very familiar with tempura, I'm not necessarily a fan of a lot of fried foods, thus the 4star rating. However, these were pretty good! If served immediately, the avocado is creamy and melts in your mouth amidst the crunchy tempura coating. Excellent tempura batter btw. I served this with both a mustard flavored sauce and a strawberry sauce. Enjoyed these as dipping finger foods. :)
