MMMMM---------------------FOR THE VEGETABLES--------------------------
      1    Eggplant (about 1/2 lb)
     16    Fresh snow peas; stemmed
    1/2 lb Fresh small mushrooms, like
           -shitake or oysters, cut in
           -half
      1 sm Sweet potato, peeled and cut
           -into 1/4" slices
      1    Bell pepper, green or red,
           -stemmed, seeded and cut
           -into 8 slices
           Peanut oil for frying
      1    Egg yolk
      2 c  Ice-cold water
    1/8 ts Baking soda
  1 2/3 c  All-purpose flour
 
  In a small mixing bowl, prepare the dipping sauce: Pour the broth or
  water over the sugar and stir to dissolve, Add soy, wine, ginger and
  oils, and stir well. Add lemon juice or rice vinegar (more or less to
  taste) and divide the sauce among 8 small individual dishes. Preheat
  oven to 200 degrees F. PLace 8 salad plates in the oven to warm.
  Place a rack over a baking sheet, and set aside. Use a vegetable
  peeler to peel stripes of skin form the eggplant, leaving on several
  narrow strips of skin. Halve the eggplant lengthwise and cut it into
  1/4" slices.Wash the slices, pat dry and place on one end of a large
  platter. PLace the rest of the prepared vegetables on the platter. In
  a stockpot or Dutch oven, heat 3" of oil over medium-high heat while
  you prepare the batter. In a large mixing bowl, add the yolk to the
  water and mix well. Stir int he baking soda; then, sift the flour in
  and stir with a wooden spoon. Using chopsticks or wooden tongs, dip
  the vegetables in the batter a piece at a time, moving each piece
  around to coat well. Maintaining oil at 375 degrees, fry the
  vegetables a serving at a time --- 2 pieces of eggplant, 2 snow peas,
  2 mushroom halves, 1 slice sweet potato and 1 slice bell pepper ---
  flipping them after 1 minute. Fry on the second side another minute
  or until lightly golden. Remove pieces with a mesh strainer tot he
  prepared baking sheet to drain. Strain any bits of batter or
  vegetables from the oil, repeat the process withthe second serving.
  When all the serving is placed in the oil, remove the first batch
  from the rack to a warmed plate in the oven. Repeat with remaining
  servings. Place a dish of dipping sauce on each plate of tempura
  vegetables, and serve immediately.
  
  Note: be sure to cut all vegetables into small, even pieces so that
  they cook evenly.  Snow peasa, mushrooms, eggplant, asparagus and
  sweet potatoes are traditional ingredients in Japan, but you can use
  carrots, bell peppers, string beans, cauliflower or onion rings as
  well.
