  • Split the tempeh in half so that you have two thin rectangles. To do this lay the tempeh on a cutting board, hold the top steady with the palm of your hand and with a knife, slice through it like you are splitting open a bagel.
  • If you like your tempeh less chewy, steam it for a few minutes to soften it. Cut each piece of tempeh into 4 pieces so you have 16 pieces in total.
  • Place the gram flour, baking powder, garlic powder and chilli powder in a bowl. Mix well. Add in the vinegar and slowly mix in the soda water until the batter is the desired consistency (like pancake batter). Then stir in shredded nori sheets.
  • Heat 2 inches of oil in a large skillet. Dredge the tempeh pieces in the cornflour, shake off the excess, and then coat with the batter. If you want an extra crunchy, thicker battered covering, re-dredge the tempeh a second time.
  • Fry the tempeh in the skillet in batches, turning once, until golden brown.
  • Place the pieces on paper towels to drain and sprinkle with salt.
  • Serve while hot with chips and tartar sauce on the side. Add lemon wedges for garnish if desired.
