Tempura batter is so diverse, I think you can put almost anything into tempura and fry it. Shrimp, sweet potatoes, onion rings, and more go so well in tempura. This is a wonderful Tempura batter I recently came across in the September addition of Fine Cooking Magazine.
This easy to make Tempura batter is great for vegetables, shrimp, and even chicken.
