    As part of my new healthy eating regime I want to eat more vegetables... I love Tempura Vegetables and think eating these is a good way for me to eat my 5 a day.

    Obviously eating steamed veg would be better for me... but can anyone tell me how much worse in a nutritional/ calorie / diet way are Tempura Vegetables?

    I make the batter using half a cup of flour, half a cut of water and deep frying the veg in olive oil.

    obviously deep frying isnt ideal dave but as long as you count how much your eating into your daily amounts, im sure it would be fine

    Could it be shallow fried ?That may help, could you steam half and batter half and then mix?
