Vegetable Tempura With Sweet Chilli Sauce

This Months IFC ( International food Challenge ) challenge was hosted by Shazia Wahid  of Cutchi Kitchen, she has a wonderful blog and  I love her baking a lot . She challenged us with an array of all yummy recipes from Hokkaido cuisine. Hokkaido cuisine is nothing but a Japanese cuisine which is famous for its sea food and also foods with dairy products because they have a popular brand around japan. So from the list of recipes shazia had shared I made two recipes and I so enjoyed them a lot . Brain child of IFC is shobana and saraswathi who did a nice job creating this wonderful group.

So for the first recipe I made this delicious and crispy snack which so simple to make . They were so delicious and enjoyed them warm as a tea time snack. .
