I've never tried it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I use Gram Flour (chickpea flour) for my tempura batter and it's delicious. It seem a bit carby but in reality it's not because you use so little and it's a lot of fiber.

Here is the thread about it: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...pea-flour.html

Also, try a search to see if anyone has used the coconut flour for tempura, might find your answer that way. Let us know if you try it, though. I am very curious to see how it turns out with coconut flour.

Thanks!

Bump! If someone tries this and it works, it would be reason enough for me finally to buy a deep fryer!

It works wonderfully. I made the most divine coconut prawns with coconut flour. I just ground up unsweetened coconut flakes as this was very inexpensive to do. My DH who does not low carb also loved the prawns. Restaurant quality without the hefty bill.

That sounds great! Yes, please do share the recipe ... and it would be lovely if you posted a pic next time.

Next time I will take pictures!

So I used another recipe loosely so it's not really original.

I used raw prawns.
Whisk one or two eggs. (depending on how many prawns you are making)
I used one.
I then mixed in the ground coconut, into the whisked eggs, so that it was a thick, pasty mixture. Dip the prawns in the mixture. Make sure they are fully coated.
Then you place on waxed paper and stick in the fridge for 30minutes.
Then roll each prawn in shredded coconut and fry. I used a shallow pan with coconut oil. They only took a couple of minutes to cook.

They came out golden brown and truly decadent.
