Country of Origin: Vietnam
Toward the end of the 16th century, fritter-cooking with a batter of flour and eggs was acquired in Nagasaki from Portuguese missionaries and merchants from the region of Alentejo. It was a way to fulfill the fasting and abstinence rules for Catholics surrounding the quarterly ember days (Latin: Quattuor Tempora). Hence the etymology of the word. In those days, tempura was deep-fried in lard with a batter of flour, water, eggs, and salt; unlike today, it was eaten without dipping sauce.
