天婦羅 ‎(hiragana てんぷら, katakana テンプラ, romaji tenpura)

  1. Alternative spelling of 天麩羅: tempura: a Japanese dish made from seafood, chicken, or vegetables dipped in batter and deep-fried

Usage notesEdit

This spelling swaps out the character meaning wheat gluten in reference to the batter used in making tempura, for the more-common character of the same reading, but meaning wife.
